Table of Abbreviations CFR Code of Federal Regulations DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of proposed rulemaking § Section U.S.C. United States Code COTP Captain of the Port asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS II. Background, Purpose, and Legal Basis The Delaware Bay and River anchorage grounds are largely used by commercial vessel traffic. General regulations covering the anchorage of vessels in the port are set out in 33 CFR 110.157. In 1992, the Delaware River Main Channel Deepening project was authorized for construction by Public Law 102–580, Section 101 (6) of the Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) 1992; modified by Public Law 106–53, Section 308 of WRDA 1999 and further modified by Public Law 106– 541, Section 306 of WRDA 2000. This project includes deepening the existing Delaware River Federal Navigation Channel from 40 to 45 feet from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:59 Jul 14, 2016 Jkt 238001 Camden, New Jersey to the mouth of the Delaware Bay. The Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) along with nonFederal sponsor, the Philadelphia Regional Port Authority (PRPA), commenced dredging for this project in 2010. This project, once completed, will allow for deeper draft vessels within the port and increase overall traffic, and anchorage usage. Due to this anticipated increase in marine traffic a review of the current Delaware Bay and River anchorage grounds was conducted by the Waterways Management Division Sector Delaware Bay, Philadelphia, PA in coordination with the Mariners Advisory Committee (MAC). Upon review it was found that multiple anchorage grounds in 33 CFR 110.157 were unusable for some larger vessels due to lack of depth needed to safely anchor. Other anchorage grounds are unusable because they spanned underneath bridges where it would be impractical for vessels to anchor, and posed an increased and unnecessary safety risk of bridge allision. The proposed changes to the Delaware Bay and River anchorages would eliminate unusable anchorage grounds and maximize usable anchorage grounds within the anchorage boundaries while continuing to safely support current and future port demands. The Coast Guard proposes this rulemaking under authority in 33 U.S.C. 1231. III. Discussion of Proposed Rule The following changes are being proposed for seven Delaware Bay and River anchorage grounds. Anchorage 1 Bombay off Hook Point, found in 33 CFR 110.157 (a)(2), currently has portions of the anchorage which intermittently experiences a water depth of 2 feet, which is unsafe for vessels to transit or anchor. The proposed changes would reduce the width of the anchorage to approximately 1,109 yards while extending the length to approximately 9,802 yards, thereby allowing more room for safe usable space within the anchorage. Anchorage 3 southeast of Reedy Point, found in 33 CFR 110.157(a)(4), currently has portions of the anchorage in the navigational channel. Furthermore, the northern portion of the anchorage, in relation to the entrance to the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal, poses an unnecessary risk of vessel collisions due to the proximity of vessels transiting to and from the canal. The proposed changes would move this anchorage 1,573 yards south of the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal 2 light, bounding the east side of the anchorage along the west side of Reedy Island Range, and extend the anchorage south PO 00000 Frm 00044 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 46027 to the southern end of Reed Island Bar. These changes would eliminate portions of the anchorage that are in the navigational channel and increase the anchorage grounds southward. Anchorage 6 off Deepwater Point, found in 33 CFR 110.157 (a)(7), currently has the southern portion of the anchorage approximately 480 yards north from the Delaware Memorial Bridge, this proximity creates an unnecessary risk of a bridge allision. To mitigate this risk, the proposed changes would relocate the southern boundary of the anchorage to approximately 701 yards north of the Delaware Memorial Bridge and extend the northern portion of the anchorage where it would end opposite the channel from the entrance of the Christina River. Anchorage 8 off Thompson Point, found in 33 CFR 110.157(a)(9), currently has portions of the anchorage in less than 9 feet of water, causing an unnecessary safety risk to vessels attempting to transit or anchor. The proposed changes would increase usable anchorage grounds within the anchorage by reducing the width of the anchorage to approximately 231 yards and extending the northern end of the anchorage to the edge of Crab Point. Anchorage 11 at Gloucester, found in 33 CFR 110.157(a)(12), currently has the northern portion of the anchorage approximately 71 yards south of the Walt Whitman Bridge. This proximity creates an unnecessary risk of a bridge allision. The proposed changes would increase the distance of the northern portion of the anchorage to 254 yards from the Walt Whitman Bridge, reducing the risk of a bridge allision for vessels in the anchorage. Anchorage 12 between Gloucester and Camden, found in 33 CFR 110.157(a)(13), currently begins south of the Walt Whitman Bridge, bordering the northern line of Anchorage 11 traveling north to the southern boundary of Anchorage 13 at Camden, NJ. Anchorages 12 and 13 each span a bridge where anchoring a vessel is impractical and creates an unnecessary risk of bridge allision. The proposed changes would address this issue by relocating the south end of Anchorage 12 to begin 232 yards north of the Walt Whitman Bridge and relocating the northern boundary to approximately 155 yards south of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge. This would eliminate any anchorage grounds underneath the Walt Whitman Bridge and Benjamin Franklin Bridge, mitigating the unnecessary risk of a bridge allision. Anchorage 13, found in 33 CFR 110.157(a)(14), currently begins on the east side of the channel adjoining and E:\FR\FM\15JYP1.SGM 15JYP1 46028 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 136 / Friday, July 15, 2016 / Proposed Rules on the upstream side of Anchorage 12, to Cooper Point, Camden. Anchorages 12 and 13 each span a bridge where anchoring a vessel is impractical and creates an unnecessary risk of bridge allision. The proposed changes above would move the south end of Anchorage 13 to begin approximately 190 yards north of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge. Anchorage 13’s northern boundary would remain the same, terminating in the vicinity of Coopers Point, Camden. This would eliminate any anchorage grounds underneath Benjamin Franklin Bridge, mitigating the unnecessary risk of a bridge allision. IV. Regulatory Analyses We developed this proposed rule after considering numerous statutes and Executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses based on a number of these statutes and Executive Orders. asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS A. Regulatory Planning and Review Executive Orders 12866 and 13563 direct agencies to assess the costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize net benefits. Executive Order 13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting flexibility. This NPRM has not been designated a ‘‘significant regulatory action,’’ under Executive Order 12866. Accordingly, the NPRM has not been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget. This proposed rule is not a significant regulatory action because it would not interfere with existing maritime activity on the Delaware River. Rather, it would enhance navigational safety along the Delaware River by providing safer locations for vessels to anchor, improving navigation safety near bridges and reducing the potential for disruption to maritime traffic by anchored vessels potentially within the federal channel. Vessels may navigate in, around, and through the modified anchorages. B. Impact on Small Entities The Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980, 5 U.S.C. 601–612, as amended, requires Federal agencies to consider the potential impact of regulations on small entities during rulemaking. The term ‘‘small entities’’ comprises small businesses, not-for-profit organizations that are independently owned and operated and are not dominant in their fields, and governmental jurisdictions with populations of less than 50,000. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:59 Jul 14, 2016 Jkt 238001 The Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this proposed rule would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. The proposed rule would affect owners and operators of vessels wishing to anchor in the Delaware Bay and River anchorages. Boundaries of some of the current anchorages would be modified, reduced, or increased depending on the water depth and relation of the anchorage to bridges along the Delaware Bay and River. The impact of the proposed rule changes would be minimal because the changes increase usable anchorage grounds and enable vessels to safely anchor in the anchorage boundaries. If you think that your business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction qualifies as a small entity and that this rule would have a significant economic impact on it, please submit a comment (see ADDRESSES) explaining why you think it qualifies and how and to what degree this rule would economically affect it. Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104–121), we want to assist small entities in understanding this proposed rule. If the rule would affect your small business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions or options for compliance, please contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section. The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small entities that question or complain about this proposed rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard. C. Collection of Information This proposed rule would not call for a new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520). D. Federalism and Indian Tribal Governments A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132, Federalism, if it has a substantial direct effect on the States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. We have analyzed this proposed rule under that Order and have determined that it is consistent with the fundamental federalism principles and preemption requirements described in Executive Order 13132. Also, this proposed rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 13175, Consultation and PO 00000 Frm 00045 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, because it would not have a substantial direct effect on one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes. If you believe this proposed rule has implications for federalism or Indian tribes, please contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section. E. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1531–1538) requires Federal agencies to assess the effects of their discretionary regulatory actions. In particular, the Act addresses actions that may result in the expenditure by a State, local, or tribal government, in the aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 (adjusted for inflation) or more in any one year. Though this proposed rule would not result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. F. Environment We have analyzed this proposed rule under Department of Homeland Security Management Directive 023–01 and Commandant Instruction M16475.lD, which guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321–4370f), and have made a preliminary determination that this action is one of a category of actions that do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. This proposed rule involves directly with establishing, disestablishing, and modifying anchorage grounds. Normally such actions are categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 34(f) of Figure 2–1 of Commandant Instruction M16475.lD. A preliminary environmental analysis checklist and Categorical Exclusion Determination are available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES. We seek any comments or information that may lead to the discovery of a significant environmental impact from this proposed rule. V. Public Participation and Request for Comments We view public participation as essential to effective rulemaking, and will consider all comments and material received during the comment period. Your comment can help shape the outcome of this rulemaking. If you submit a comment, please include the E:\FR\FM\15JYP1.SGM 15JYP1 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 136 / Friday, July 15, 2016 / Proposed Rules docket number for this rulemaking, indicate the specific section of this document to which each comment applies, and provide a reason for each suggestion or recommendation.

ACTION: Proposed rule. AGENCY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to revise the current federal Clean Water Act selenium water quality criteria applicable to the San Francisco Bay and Delta to ensure that the criteria are set at levels that protect aquatic life and aquatic-dependent wildlife, including federally listed threatened and endangered species. The San Francisco Bay and Delta ecosystem is at risk due to environmental degradation, including impacts from elevated levels of selenium, and state and federal actions are underway to restore the waterway. Scientific evidence indicates that elevated selenium levels can contribute to the decline of fish and aquaticdependent birds. EPA promulgated the San Francisco Bay and Delta’s existing selenium criteria in 1992 as part of the National Toxics Rule, using EPA’s recommended aquatic life criteria values at the time. However, the latest science on selenium fate and bioaccumulation indicates that the existing criteria are not protective of aquatic life and aquatic-dependent wildlife in the San Francisco Bay and Delta. Therefore, EPA is proposing to revise the existing selenium criteria, taking into account available science, legal requirements, and EPA policies and guidance. EPA’s proposal will address the Administrator’s determination—described in this preamble—that EPA’s previously promulgated water quality criteria are asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS SUMMARY: not adequate to protect the designated uses for these waters.

II. Background, Purpose, and Legal Basis

    The Delaware Bay and River anchorage grounds are largely used by 
commercial vessel traffic. General regulations covering the anchorage 
of vessels in the port are set out in 33 CFR 110.157. In 1992, the 
Delaware River Main Channel Deepening project was authorized for 
construction by Public Law 102-580, Section 101 (6) of the Water 
Resources Development Act (WRDA) 1992; modified by Public Law 106-53, 
Section 308 of WRDA 1999 and further modified by Public Law 106-541, 
Section 306 of WRDA 2000. This project includes deepening the existing 
Delaware River Federal Navigation Channel from 40 to 45 feet from 
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and Camden, New Jersey to the mouth of the 
Delaware Bay. The Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) along with non-
Federal sponsor, the Philadelphia Regional Port Authority (PRPA), 
commenced dredging for this project in 2010. This project, once 
completed, will allow for deeper draft vessels within the port and 
increase overall traffic, and anchorage usage. Due to this anticipated 
increase in marine traffic a review of the current Delaware Bay and 
River anchorage grounds was conducted by the Waterways Management 
Division Sector Delaware Bay, Philadelphia, PA in coordination with the 
Mariners Advisory Committee (MAC). Upon review it was found that 
multiple anchorage grounds in 33 CFR 110.157 were unusable for some 
larger vessels due to lack of depth needed to safely anchor. Other 
anchorage grounds are unusable because they spanned underneath bridges 
where it would be impractical for vessels to anchor, and posed an 
increased and unnecessary safety risk of bridge allision. The proposed 
changes to the Delaware Bay and River anchorages would eliminate 
unusable anchorage grounds and maximize usable anchorage grounds within 
the anchorage boundaries while continuing to safely support current and 
future port demands. The Coast Guard proposes this rulemaking under 
authority in 33 U.S.C. 1231.

III. Discussion of Proposed Rule

    The following changes are being proposed for seven Delaware Bay and 
River anchorage grounds.
    Anchorage 1 Bombay off Hook Point, found in 33 CFR 110.157 (a)(2), 
currently has portions of the anchorage which intermittently 
experiences a water depth of 2 feet, which is unsafe for vessels to 
transit or anchor. The proposed changes would reduce the width of the 
anchorage to approximately 1,109 yards while extending the length to 
approximately 9,802 yards, thereby allowing more room for safe usable 
space within the anchorage.
    Anchorage 3 southeast of Reedy Point, found in 33 CFR 
110.157(a)(4), currently has portions of the anchorage in the 
navigational channel. Furthermore, the northern portion of the 
anchorage, in relation to the entrance to the Chesapeake and Delaware 
Canal, poses an unnecessary risk of vessel collisions due to the 
proximity of vessels transiting to and from the canal. The proposed 
changes would move this anchorage 1,573 yards south of the Chesapeake 
and Delaware Canal 2 light, bounding the east side of the anchorage 
along the west side of Reedy Island Range, and extend the anchorage 
south to the southern end of Reed Island Bar. These changes would 
eliminate portions of the anchorage that are in the navigational 
channel and increase the anchorage grounds southward.
    Anchorage 6 off Deepwater Point, found in 33 CFR 110.157 (a)(7), 
currently has the southern portion of the anchorage approximately 480 
yards north from the Delaware Memorial Bridge, this proximity creates 
an unnecessary risk of a bridge allision. To mitigate this risk, the 
proposed changes would relocate the southern boundary of the anchorage 
to approximately 701 yards north of the Delaware Memorial Bridge and 
extend the northern portion of the anchorage where it would end 
opposite the channel from the entrance of the Christina River.
    Anchorage 8 off Thompson Point, found in 33 CFR 110.157(a)(9), 
currently has portions of the anchorage in less than 9 feet of water, 
causing an unnecessary safety risk to vessels attempting to transit or 
anchor. The proposed changes would increase usable anchorage grounds 
within the anchorage by reducing the width of the anchorage to 
approximately 231 yards and extending the northern end of the anchorage 
to the edge of Crab Point.
    Anchorage 11 at Gloucester, found in 33 CFR 110.157(a)(12), 
currently has the northern portion of the anchorage approximately 71 
yards south of the Walt Whitman Bridge. This proximity creates an 
unnecessary risk of a bridge allision. The proposed changes would 
increase the distance of the northern portion of the anchorage to 254 
yards from the Walt Whitman Bridge, reducing the risk of a bridge 
allision for vessels in the anchorage.
    Anchorage 12 between Gloucester and Camden, found in 33 CFR 
110.157(a)(13), currently begins south of the Walt Whitman Bridge, 
bordering the northern line of Anchorage 11 traveling north to the 
southern boundary of Anchorage 13 at Camden, NJ. Anchorages 12 and 13 
each span a bridge where anchoring a vessel is impractical and creates 
an unnecessary risk of bridge allision. The proposed changes would 
address this issue by relocating the south end of Anchorage 12 to begin 
232 yards north of the Walt Whitman Bridge and relocating the northern 
boundary to approximately 155 yards south of the Benjamin Franklin 
Bridge. This would eliminate any anchorage grounds underneath the Walt 
Whitman Bridge and Benjamin Franklin Bridge, mitigating the unnecessary 
risk of a bridge allision.
    Anchorage 13, found in 33 CFR 110.157(a)(14), currently begins on 
the east side of the channel adjoining and

[[Page 46028]]

on the upstream side of Anchorage 12, to Cooper Point, Camden. 
Anchorages 12 and 13 each span a bridge where anchoring a vessel is 
impractical and creates an unnecessary risk of bridge allision. The 
proposed changes above would move the south end of Anchorage 13 to 
begin approximately 190 yards north of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge. 
Anchorage 13's northern boundary would remain the same, terminating in 
the vicinity of Coopers Point, Camden. This would eliminate any 
anchorage grounds underneath Benjamin Franklin Bridge, mitigating the 
unnecessary risk of a bridge allision.

IV. Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this proposed rule after considering numerous statutes 
and Executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our 
analyses based on a number of these statutes and Executive Orders.

A. Regulatory Planning and Review

    Executive Orders 12866 and 13563 direct agencies to assess the 
costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if 
regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize 
net benefits. Executive Order 13563 emphasizes the importance of 
quantifying both costs and benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing 
rules, and of promoting flexibility. This NPRM has not been designated 
a ``significant regulatory action,'' under Executive Order 12866. 
Accordingly, the NPRM has not been reviewed by the Office of Management 
and Budget.
    This proposed rule is not a significant regulatory action because 
it would not interfere with existing maritime activity on the Delaware 
River. Rather, it would enhance navigational safety along the Delaware 
River by providing safer locations for vessels to anchor, improving 
navigation safety near bridges and reducing the potential for 
disruption to maritime traffic by anchored vessels potentially within 
the federal channel. Vessels may navigate in, around, and through the 
modified anchorages.

B. Impact on Small Entities

    The Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980, 5 U.S.C. 601-612, as 
amended, requires Federal agencies to consider the potential impact of 
regulations on small entities during rulemaking. The term ``small 
entities'' comprises small businesses, not-for-profit organizations 
that are independently owned and operated and are not dominant in their 
fields, and governmental jurisdictions with populations of less than 
50,000. The Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this 
proposed rule would not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities.
    The proposed rule would affect owners and operators of vessels 
wishing to anchor in the Delaware Bay and River anchorages. Boundaries 
of some of the current anchorages would be modified, reduced, or 
increased depending on the water depth and relation of the anchorage to 
bridges along the Delaware Bay and River. The impact of the proposed 
rule changes would be minimal because the changes increase usable 
anchorage grounds and enable vessels to safely anchor in the anchorage 
boundaries.
    If you think that your business, organization, or governmental 
jurisdiction qualifies as a small entity and that this rule would have 
a significant economic impact on it, please submit a comment (see 
ADDRESSES) explaining why you think it qualifies and how and to what 
degree this rule would economically affect it.
    Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement 
Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104-121), we want to assist small 
entities in understanding this proposed rule. If the rule would affect 
your small business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction and you 
have questions concerning its provisions or options for compliance, 
please contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT 
section. The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small entities that 
question or complain about this proposed rule or any policy or action 
of the Coast Guard.

C. Collection of Information

    This proposed rule would not call for a new collection of 
information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-
3520).

D. Federalism and Indian Tribal Governments

    A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132, 
Federalism, if it has a substantial direct effect on the States, on the 
relationship between the national government and the States, or on the 
distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of 
government. We have analyzed this proposed rule under that Order and 
have determined that it is consistent with the fundamental federalism 
principles and preemption requirements described in Executive Order 
13132.
    Also, this proposed rule does not have tribal implications under 
Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal 
Governments, because it would not have a substantial direct effect on 
one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal 
Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and 
responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes. If 
you believe this proposed rule has implications for federalism or 
Indian tribes, please contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER 
INFORMATION CONTACT section.

E. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

    The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1531-1538) 
requires Federal agencies to assess the effects of their discretionary 
regulatory actions. In particular, the Act addresses actions that may 
result in the expenditure by a State, local, or tribal government, in 
the aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 (adjusted for 
inflation) or more in any one year. Though this proposed rule would not 
result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule 
elsewhere in this preamble.

F. Environment

    We have analyzed this proposed rule under Department of Homeland 
Security Management Directive 023-01 and Commandant Instruction 
M16475.lD, which guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National 
Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321-4370f), and have made 
a preliminary determination that this action is one of a category of 
actions that do not individually or cumulatively have a significant 
effect on the human environment. This proposed rule involves directly 
with establishing, disestablishing, and modifying anchorage grounds. 
Normally such actions are categorically excluded from further review 
under paragraph 34(f) of Figure 2-1 of Commandant Instruction 
M16475.lD. A preliminary environmental analysis checklist and 
Categorical Exclusion Determination are available in the docket where 
indicated under ADDRESSES. We seek any comments or information that may 
lead to the discovery of a significant environmental impact from this 
proposed rule.

V. Public Participation and Request for Comments

    We view public participation as essential to effective rulemaking, 
and will consider all comments and material received during the comment 
period. Your comment can help shape the outcome of this rulemaking. If 
you submit a comment, please include the
