ACTION: Notice of proposed determination. AGENCY: By petition dated September 20, 2012 and submitted pursuant to 33 CFR 1322(f)(3) and 40 CFR 140.4(a), the State of New York certified that the protection and enhancement of the waters of the New York State portion of the St. Lawrence River and the numerous navigable tributaries, harbors and embayments thereof, requires greater environmental protection than the applicable Federal standards provide, and petitioned the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Region 2, for a determination that adequate facilities for the safe and sanitary removal and treatment of sewage from all vessels are reasonably available for those waters, so that the State may completely prohibit the discharge from all vessels of any sewage, whether treated or not, into such waters. On April 22, 2013, the EPA requested additional information regarding the population of commercial vessels using the subject waters and the availability of options for sewage removal from those vessels.

Include ‘‘Comments on Proposed Determination on New York State portion of St. Lawrence River NDZ Petition’’ in the subject line of the message. • Mail and Hand Delivery/Courier: Moses Chang, U.S. EPA Region 2, 290 Broadway, 24th Floor, New York, NY 10007–1866. Deliveries are only accepted during the Regional Office’s normal hours of operation (8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding federal holidays), and special arrangements should be made for deliveries of boxed information. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Moses Chang, (212) 637–3867, Email address: chang.moses@epa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Proposed No Discharge Zone: The proposed Vessel Waste No Discharge Zone (NDZ) for the New York State portion of the St. Lawrence River includes the waters of the River within the New York State boundary, stretching from its southwestern boundary at Tibbetts Point, where the river meets Lake Ontario, to its northeastern boundary at the St. Lawrence-Franklin County Line, near Akwesasne, New York.1 The proposed NDZ encompasses 1 New York State’s petition proposes to establish a NDZ that extends, in the northeast, to the U.S.Canadian border. However, New York State’s jurisdiction over waters of the St. Lawrence River PO 00000 Frm 00026 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 approximately 112 miles of river and shoreline, and the numerous navigable tributaries, harbors, and embayments of the River—including, but not limited to, the New York State portions of the Raquette River, the Grass River, Brandy Brook, Sucker Brook, Whitehouse Bay, Oswegatchie River, Morristown Bay, Blind Bay, Chippewa Creek, Chippewa Bay, Crooked Creek, Goose Bay, Lake of the Isles, Eel Bay, South Bay, Carnegie Bay, Greens Creek, Otter Creek, Swan Bay, Spicer Bay, Carrier Bay, French Creek Bay, Sawmill Bay, Sand Bay, Dodge Bay, Millen Bay, Peos Bay and Grass Bay—and other formally designated habitats and waterways of local, state and national significance. Certification of Need: New York’s petition contains a certification by the Commissioner of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) that the protection and enhancement of the New York State portion of the St. Lawrence River and the numerous navigable tributaries, harbors and embayments thereof, requires greater environmental protection than the applicable Federal standards provide. The certification states that the subject waters are of unique ecological, economic and public health significance, and that pathogens and chemicals contained in the currently-lawful effluent from discharging marine sanitation devices (MSDs) threaten public health and the environment and contravene the State’s ongoing efforts to control point and nonends, in the northeast, at the St. Regis Mohawk Reservation border at the St. Lawrence-Franklin county line. Therefore, New York State does not have the authority under the Clean Water Act to establish a NDZ for the 2.9 miles of the St. Lawrence River that lie within the United States, between the St. Lawrence-Franklin county line and the U.S.-Canadian border. Accordingly, this tentative determination only regards the approximately 112 miles of the St. Lawrence River over which New York State has jurisdiction. E:\FR\FM\24MRN1.SGM 24MRN1
