Coast Guard December 11, 2006 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Regulated Navigation Area; East Rockaway Inlet to Atlantic Beach Bridge, Nassau County, Long Island, NY
Document Number: E6-20921
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-12-11
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard is issuing another temporary final rule to continue a temporary regulated navigation area (RNA) from the entrance of East Rockaway Inlet to the Atlantic Beach Bridge, Nassau County, New York. Significant shoaling in this area has reduced the depths of the navigable channel and has increased the risk of vessels with drafts of greater than 5 feet carrying petroleum products as cargo grounding in the channel, and the potential for a significant oil spill. This rule will continue to restrict passage of commercial vessels carrying petroleum products with a loaded draft in excess of 5 feet.
