Coast Guard October 22, 2007 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Anchorage Regulation; Port Everglades, FL
Document Number: E7-20608
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-10-22
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard proposes to amend the anchorage regulations for Port Everglades, Florida. The amendment would modify the current anchorage area by eliminating that portion of the anchorage closest to sensitive coral reef areas, expand that portion of the anchorage area that poses less risk to these areas, and limit the amount of time a vessel may remain in the anchorage area. These changes would ensure all vessels have fair access to the anchorage area, and provide a higher degree of vessel and environmental safety by reducing the possibility of vessels grounding in sensitive coral reef areas.
