Accreditation and Approval of NMK Resources, Inc. (Kenner, LA) as a Commercial Gauger and Laboratory, 11319-11320 [2019-05758]

Download as PDF 11319 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 58 / Tuesday, March 26, 2019 / Notices 2001716995/-1/-1/0/CI_16003_2A.PDF, as a guide. IV. Possible Scope of the Recommendations We are attempting to determine what, if any, navigational safety concerns exist with vessel transits in the study area. We expect that information gathered during the study will help us identify anticipated impacts to navigation that may be experienced by mariners intending to transit in, around and through the study area which includes the MA/RI Wind Energy Area (MA/RI WEA) which is an area of wind farm leases south of Martha’s Vineyard. All leases are currently being studied for development including the construction of wind energy generating turbines affixed to the sea floor. These installations could impact routes used to access ports (e.g., transiting from Georges Bank through the MA/RI WEA to New Bedford; or from the vicinity of Montauk, NY/Point Judith, RI, to Georges Bank, etc.). Impacts could result from factors such as number, size, type, and layout of wind farm turbines and electric service platform(s), subsea cabling, increased vessel traffic, changing vessel traffic patterns, weather conditions, or navigational difficulty. Comments should include or reference data (both empirical and anecdotal) where available, published studies (academic, government, or industry), and other supporting documentation. As part of this study, we may collect and analyze data and other information on vessel traffic characteristics and trends in an attempt to balance the needs of all waterway users. This MARIPARS includes the following objectives: 1. Determine present vessel traffic types, patterns, and density; 2. Determine potential vessel traffic types, patterns, and density; 3. Determine if existing vessel routing measures are adequate; 4. Determine if existing vessel routing measures require modifications; CBPL No. Dated: March 21, 2019. G. D.
