United States Marine Corps, Marine Corps Base Quantico, Quantico VA; Restricted Area
Document Number: 2010-21756
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2010-08-31
Agency: Department of Defense, Department of the Army, Corps of Engineers, Engineers Corps, Army Department
The Corps of Engineers (Corps) is proposing to amend its regulations to establish a permanent restricted area in the waters of the Potomac River in the vicinity of Marine Corps Base (MCB) Quantico, located in Quantico, Virginia. The establishment of a permanent restricted area is necessary to reflect the current security and safety needs at MCB Quantico, including protection of military assets at the Marine Corps Air Facility (MCAF) Quantico, which include the Presidential Helicopter Squadron. The assets located on MCAF Quantico are considered national assets of strategic value and require the increased protection obtained by restricting all public access to within 500 meters of the MCAF shoreline. The proposed restricted area provides standoff from most small arms weapons, acts as a security buffer, and assists USMC security forces in determining intent amongst heavy boat traffic. Additionally, there is an extreme hazard to small craft and vessels operating in close proximity to the MCAF due to jet and prop wash from heavy jet and rotary wing aircraft operating at low altitudes while conducting takeoff and landing operations. The proposed restricted area protects public safety by denying vessels access to this danger. The restricted area is also required to protect public health by preventing vessels from disturbing a planned environmental remediation area located in the vicinity of MCAF. The restricted area will extend approximately 500 meters from the shoreline of MCB/MCAF Quantico and will include the Chopawamsic Creek channel.

The U.S. Army requested that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) revise the regulation for the restricted area in the Cape Fear River and its tributaries at Sunny Point Army Terminal, Brunswick County, North Carolina, by renaming the marker buoys and specifying the latitude and longitude for those buoys. There are no other changes proposed for this restricted area regulation. The purpose of the rule is to correct the buoys designating the boundary of the restricted area. The restricted area provides security for the facility, and prevents acts of terrorism, sabotage, or other criminal acts against the facility, including vessels loading and offloading at the Sunny Point Army Terminal.

Document Number: 2010-21735
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2010-08-31
Agency: Department of Defense, Department of the Army, Corps of Engineers, Engineers Corps, Army Department
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is proposing to revise its regulations to establish a restricted area to change the navigability status of a portion of Eagle River within the boundaries of Fort Richardson, Alaska as well as an adjacent portion of Eagle Bay in the Knik Arm. More specifically, the restricted area is to include all waters of Eagle River downstream from the Bravo Bridge as well as the portion of Eagle Bay east of a demarcation line to extend from two points of Fort Richardson land along northern and southern shores of the Bay. This amendment would prohibit vessels and persons from entering affected waters of Eagle Bay and Eagle River in order to enhance safety and security. This portion of Eagle River runs through an active military range munitions impact area. This portion of Eagle Bay could be subjected to hazardous levels of noise during certain training exercises; Army control of this area is also necessary to prevent unauthorized access into the impact area. The restricted area is necessary to protect the public from entering an extremely hazardous area.

Document Number: 2010-20391
Type: Rule
Date: 2010-08-18
Agency: Office of the Secretary, Department of Defense
TRICARE has recognized the unique circumstances existing in Alaska which make the provision of medical care to TRICARE beneficiaries through the TRICARE program operated in the other 49 states unrealistic.

This rule incorporates the waiver of the requirement for financial underwriting by a TRICARE contractor as a permanent change to the administration of the TRICARE program in Alaska. This rule proposes no change to the TRICARE benefit or to those who are eligible for it. However, the rule does eliminate the financial underwriting of health care costs in the state of Alaska by a TRICARE contractor.
