Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 183 / Friday, September 24, 2021 / Notices Schedule for the Decision-Making Process Following the comment period announced in this Notice of Availability, and after consideration of all comments received, Coast Guard would prepare a Final PEIS for the acquisition and operation of a planned 30 WCCs. In meeting CEQ regulations requiring EISs to be completed within 2 years the Coast Guard anticipates the Final PEIS would be available in 2022. Availability of the Final PEIS would be published in the Federal Register and would be available for a 30-day waiting period. Because new information may become available after the completion of the Draft or Final PEIS, supplemental NEPA documentation may be prepared in support of new information or changes in the Proposed Action considered under the PEIS. Public Scoping Process The Coast Guard is seeking comments on the potential environmental impacts that may result from the Proposed Action or preliminary Alternatives. The Coast Guard is also seeking input on relevant information, studies, or analyses of any kind concerning impacts potentially affecting the quality of the human environment as a result of the Proposed Action. NEPA requires federal agencies to consider environmental impacts that may result from a Proposed Action, to inform the public of potential impacts and alternatives, and to facilitate public involvement in the assessment process. The PEIS includes, among other topics, discussions of the purpose and need for the Proposed Action, a description of alternatives, a description of the affected environment, and an evaluation of the environmental impact of the Proposed Action and alternatives. The Coast Guard intends to follow the CEQ regulations implementing the NEPA (40 CFR 1500–1508) by scoping through public comments. Scoping, which is integral to the process for implementing NEPA, provides a process to ensure that (1) issues are identified early and properly studied; (2) issues of little significance do not consume substantial time and effort; (3) the draft PEIS is thorough and balanced; and (4) delays caused by an inadequate PEIS are avoided. Public scoping is a process for determining the scope of issues to be addressed in this PEIS and for identifying the issues related to the Proposed Action that may have a significant effect on the environment. The scoping process began with publication of the Notice of Intent to VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:50 Sep 23, 2021 Jkt 253001 prepare the PEIS, published April 19, 2021 (86 FR 20376). The Coast Guard received two comments during the 45day public scoping period that began April 27, 2021 and ended June 11, 2021. In this Notice of Availability, the Coast Guard is providing the public with the opportunity to comment on the Draft PEIS. After Coast Guard considers those comments, the Final PEIS will be prepared and its availability similarly announced to solicit public review and comment. Comments received during the Draft PEIS review period will be available in the public docket and made available in the Final PEIS. Pursuant to the CEQ regulations, Coast Guard invites public participation in the NEPA process. This notice requests public comments, establishes a public comment period, and provides information on how to participate. The 45-day public comment period begins September 24, 2021 and ends November 8, 2021.

Table of Abbreviations AIS—Automated Information System DHS—Department of Homeland Security FR—Federal Register NEPA—National Environmental Policy Act PARS—Port Access Route Study ACPARS—Atlantic Coast Ports Access Route Study U.S.C.—United States Code WEA—Wind Energy Area II. Background and Purpose The Ports and Waterways Safety Act (46 U.S.C. 70003(c)) requires the Coast Guard to conduct a PARS, i.e., a study of potential traffic density and the need for safe access routes for vessels. Through the study process, the Coast Guard coordinates with Federal, State, local, tribal and foreign state agencies (as appropriate) to consider the views of maritime community representatives, environmental groups, and other interested stakeholders. The primary purpose of this coordination is, to the extent practicable, to reconcile the need for safe access routes with other reasonable waterway uses such as construction and operation of renewable energy facilities and other uses of the Atlantic Ocean in the study area. In 2019, the Coast Guard announced a supplemental study of routes used by all vessels to access ports on the Atlantic Coast of the United States (84 FR 9541, March 15, 2019). This notice announced PARS for specific port approaches and international transit areas along the Atlantic Coast. The purpose of the supplemental studies is to align the Atlantic Coast Port Access Route Study (ACPARS) (81 FR 13307, March 14, 2016) with port approaches. The ACPARS analyzed the Atlantic Coast waters seaward of existing port approaches within the U.S. Exclusive Economic Zone and was finalized in 2017 (82 FR 16510, April 5, 2017). The purpose of this notice is to announce the availability of the draft PARS examining the seacoast of New Jersey and the offshore approaches to the Delaware Bay, Delaware. We encourage you to participate in the study process by submitting comments in response to this notice. This PARS used AIS data and information from stakeholders to identify and verify customary navigation routes as well as potential conflicts involving alternative activities, such as wind energy generation and offshore mineral exploitation and exploration off the seacoast of New Jersey and in the offshore approaches to the Delaware Bay, Delaware. The study area extends approximately 175 nautical miles seaward of the VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:50 Sep 23, 2021 Jkt 253001 seacoast of New Jersey, Delaware, and Maryland between Sandy Hook, New Jersey, and Ocean City, Maryland. An illustration showing the study area is available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES. Additionally, the study area is available for viewing on the Mid-Atlantic Ocean Data Portal at http://portal.midatlanticocean.org/ visualize/. See the ‘‘Maritime’’ portion of the Data Layers section. On May 5, 2020, the Coast Guard published a Notice of Study; request for comments entitled ‘‘Port Access Route Study: Seacoast of New Jersey Including Offshore Approaches to the Delaware Bay, Delaware’’ in the Federal Register (85 FR 26695). The initial comment period closed on July 5, 2020. The Coast Guard conducted two virtual public meetings on October 29 and November 4, 2020. Recordings of the public meetings are available from the docket. The comment period re-opened through November 10, 2020. The Coast Guard also conducted outreach with port partners during this time. IV. Information Requested PARS are the means by which program managers determine the need to establish traffic routing measures or shipping safety fairways to reduce the risk of collision, allision and grounding, and their impact on the environment, increase the efficiency and predictability of vessel traffic, and preserve the paramount right of navigation while continuing to allow for other reasonable waterway uses. The study analyzes current routing measures around the approaches to Delaware Bay and proposes an adequate way to manage forecasted maritime traffic growth. The study also reviewed coastal port access from the seacoast of New Jersey and the co-dependent use of the waters in support of future development. The Coast Guard received 34 comments in response to our Federal Register notice and other outreach efforts.

II. Background and Purpose

    The Ports and Waterways Safety Act (46 U.S.C. 70003(c)) requires 
the Coast Guard to conduct a PARS, i.e., a study of potential traffic 
density and the need for safe access routes for vessels. Through the 
study process, the Coast Guard coordinates with Federal, State, local, 
tribal and foreign state agencies (as appropriate) to consider the 
views of maritime community representatives, environmental groups, and 
other interested stakeholders. The primary purpose of this coordination 
is, to the extent practicable, to reconcile the need for safe access 
routes with other reasonable waterway uses such as construction and 
operation of renewable energy facilities and other uses of the Atlantic 
Ocean in the study area.
    In 2019, the Coast Guard announced a supplemental study of routes 
used by all vessels to access ports on the Atlantic Coast of the United 
States (84 FR 9541, March 15, 2019). This notice announced PARS for 
specific port approaches and international transit areas along the 
Atlantic Coast. The purpose of the supplemental studies is to align the 
Atlantic Coast Port Access Route Study (ACPARS) (81 FR 13307, March 14, 
2016) with port approaches. The ACPARS analyzed the Atlantic Coast 
waters seaward of existing port approaches within the U.S. Exclusive 
Economic Zone and was finalized in 2017 (82 FR 16510, April 5, 2017).
    The purpose of this notice is to announce the availability of the 
draft PARS examining the seacoast of New Jersey and the offshore 
approaches to the Delaware Bay, Delaware. We encourage you to 
participate in the study process by submitting comments in response to 
this notice. This PARS used AIS data and information from stakeholders 
to identify and verify customary navigation routes as well as potential 
conflicts involving alternative activities, such as wind energy 
generation and offshore mineral exploitation and exploration off the 
seacoast of New Jersey and in the offshore approaches to the Delaware 
Bay, Delaware.
    The study area extends approximately 175 nautical miles seaward of 
the seacoast of New Jersey, Delaware, and Maryland between Sandy Hook, 
New Jersey, and Ocean City, Maryland. An illustration showing the study 
area is available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES. 
Additionally, the study area is available for viewing on the Mid-
Atlantic Ocean Data Portal at http://portal.midatlanticocean.org/visualize/. See the ``Maritime'' portion of the Data Layers section.
    On May 5, 2020, the Coast Guard published a Notice of Study; 
request for comments entitled ``Port Access Route Study: Seacoast of 
New Jersey Including Offshore Approaches to the Delaware Bay, 
Delaware'' in the Federal Register (85 FR 26695). The initial comment 
period closed on July 5, 2020. The Coast Guard conducted two virtual 
public meetings on October 29 and November 4, 2020. Recordings of the 
public meetings are available from the docket. The comment period re-
opened through November 10, 2020. The Coast Guard also conducted 
outreach with port partners during this time.

IV. Information Requested

    PARS are the means by which program managers determine the need to 
establish traffic routing measures or shipping safety fairways to 
reduce the risk of collision, allision and grounding, and their impact 
on the environment, increase the efficiency and predictability of 
vessel traffic, and preserve the paramount right of navigation while 
continuing to allow for other reasonable waterway uses. The study 
analyzes current routing measures around the approaches to Delaware Bay 
and proposes an adequate way to manage forecasted maritime traffic 
growth. The study also reviewed coastal port access from the seacoast 
of New Jersey and the co-dependent use of the waters in support of 
future development.
    The Coast Guard received 34 comments in response to our Federal 
Register notice and other outreach efforts. All comments and supporting 
documents are available in a public docket and can be viewed at http://www.regulations.gov. To do so, go to https://www.regulations.gov, type 
USCG-2020-0172 in the ``SEARCH'' box and click ``SEARCH.'' Next, look 
for this document in the Search Results column, and click on it. These 
comments were submitted by commercial maritime operators, including 
fishing vessel operators, state, and port partners. Topics covered by 
these comments included support and requests for additional routing 
measures around WEAs, requests for collaboration with state 
organizations, and requests for NEPA compliance and Environmental 
Impact Studies to be completed. A synopsis of the comments and copies 
of the Coast Guard's Public outreach can be found in the report.
    As a result of the data analysis within this study and considering 
the comments received the Coast Guard proposes six modified or 
additional measures for consideration by the public. We seek your input 
on these proposals and welcome comment on any impact to vessel transit 
time, fishing activity, and/or navigation safety. All comments received 
will be reviewed and considered before a final version of the PARS is 
announced in the Federal Register. This notice is published under the 
authority of 46 U.S.C. 70004 and 5 U.S.C. 552(a).
