Document Number: 2011-8518
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-04-12
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard proposes to amend an existing anchorage ground which currently overlaps a pilot underwater cap (``pilot cap'') in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) New Bedford Harbor Superfund Site in New Bedford, MA. The Coast Guard also proposes to establish a regulated navigation area (RNA) prohibiting activities that disturb the seabed around the site. The proposed RNA would not affect transit or navigation of the area.
