Penn′s Landing, Delaware River, Philadelphia PA. natural areas in the metropolitan corridor extending from Washington, DC, to Boston, MA. Located near the New York City and Philadelphia metropolitan areas, and easily accessible by private vehicle, the recreation area offers a variety of recreational opportunities. These include hiking, swimming, fishing, hunting, boating, pleasure driving, and sight-seeing; learning about natural and cultural history; and enjoying the solitude of a rural environment and a change of pace. The waters of the Middle Delaware National Scenic & Recreational River are of exceptional quality. The 125 miles of the Delaware River that includes the Upper Delaware National Scenic & Recreational River, Delaware Gap National Recreation Area (Middle Delaware), and the Lower Delaware National Wild & Scenic River are classified as Special Protection Waters which have exceptionally high scenic, recreational and ecological values. The free-flowing Delaware River cuts through a narrow valley, and the adjacent lands contain streams and waterfalls, geologic features, a variety of plants and wildlife, and cultural resources. The National Park Service (NPS) administers the lands and waters within the recreation area to provide outdoor recreation opportunities while conserving the natural, cultural and scenic resources of the recreation area. In so doing, the NPS works cooperatively with surrounding communities and the public to achieve the conservation goals of the Delaware River region. Regulatory Reform Initiative On February 24, 2017, President Trump issued Executive Order 13777, ‘‘Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda.’’ This Executive Order established a regulatory reform initiative to alleviate unnecessary burdens placed on the American people.

All waters of Delaware River, adjacent to Penn’s Landing, Philadelphia, PA, within 500 yards of a fireworks barge at approximate position latitude 39°56′49″ N, longitude 075°08′11″ W. for implementing this initiative, the NPS is reviewing its regulations in order to identify those that should be repealed, replaced, or modified. These include regulations that are outdated or unnecessary. Final Rule The NPS has identified several special regulations applicable to the recreation area that are outdated and no longer enforced by the NPS. The NPS is removing these regulations to reduce a potential source of confusion for the public about what activities are allowed within the recreation area. These regulations are codified in 36 CFR 7.71(c)–(e) and address rock climbing and commercial vehicles. Paragraph (c) requires visitors to register with the Superintendent prior to technical rock climbing. For the program to function properly climbers would register with the NPS prior to a climb, and then notify the NPS when the climb had safely concluded. The NPS found that the registration requirement triggered search missions that often were unfounded or unnecessary, because this registration system was not used properly by the public. As a result, the NPS determined that the costs associated with the program outweighed any potential benefits to public safety from its implementation. The registration requirement for technical rock climbing was operationally eliminated more than 25 years ago and has not been enforced since. Paragraphs (d) and (e) identify the types of commercial vehicles that may be operated within DEWA and establish a fee schedule for those vehicles. The legislation authorizing the regulations about commercial vehicles has expired and was replaced in 2018 with a new Congressional authorization, Public Law 115–101 (January 8, 2018), that authorized the Superintendent to establish a fee and permit program.
