Temporary final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone for certain navigable waters on the Piscataqua River in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. The safety zone is needed to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment from potential hazards created by cross-channel repair work on the submarine cables and removal of concrete cable mats on the Sarah Mildred Long Bridge in Portsmouth, NH.

This rule is effective without actual notice from August 19, 2021, through October 31, 2021. For the purposes of enforcement, actual notice will be used from September 1, 2021, until August 19, 2021.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Table of Abbreviations CFR Code of Federal Regulations COTP Captain of the Port Northern New England DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of proposed rulemaking § Section U.S.C. United States Code II. Background Information and Regulatory History The Coast Guard is issuing this temporary rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment pursuant to authority under section 4(a) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 553(b)). This provision authorizes an agency to issue a rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment when the agency for good cause finds that those procedures are ‘‘impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.’’ Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for not publishing a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) with respect to this rule because we must establish the temporary safety zone by September 1, 2021, for this unscheduled critical repair work and insufficient time exists to execute the full NPRM process. Additionally, delaying the effective date of this rule would be contrary to the public interest as it is necessary to establish this safety zone to protect personnel and vessels from hazards associated with submarine cable repairs and concrete mat removal on the Sarah Mildred Long Bridge. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for making this rule effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. Delaying the effective date of this rule would be impracticable because immediate action is needed to respond to the potential safety hazards associated with submarine cable repairs and concrete mat removal on the Sarah Mildred Long Bridge. III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule The Coast Guard is issuing this rule under authority in 46 U.S.C. 70034 (previously 33 U.S.C. 1231). The Captain of the Port Northern New England (COTP) has determined that potential hazards associated with submarine cable repairs and concrete mat removal starting September 1, 2021, will be a safety concern for anyone within a 100-yard radius of crane barges E:\FR\FM\19AUR1.SGM 19AUR1
