Intent To Prepare a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) For a Central Everglades Planning Project Post Authorization Change Report for the Everglades Agricultural Area Reservoir, Florida
The South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) has prepared a feasibility study and draft environmental documentation pursuant to section 203 of WRDA 1986, as amended, and on March 26, 2018 submitted that study to the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Civil Works (ASA(CW)) for review for the purpose of determining whether the study, and the process under which the study was developed, comply with Federal laws and regulations applicable to feasibility studies of water resources development projects. This notice advises the public that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps), at the direction of the ASA(CW), intends to prepare a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) to support the ASA(CW) review of SFWMD's study, a review which is to culminate in a report to Congressional Committees. SFWMD has described the purpose of the project that is the subject of the feasibility study as increasing the amount of water storage, treatment and conveyance in the Central Everglades Planning Project (CEPP) New Water project feature. The alternatives SFWMD identified and evaluated for its consideration are contained in Sections 3.0 and 4.0 of Volume 1 (Main Report) of SFWMD's Central Everglades Planning Project Post Authorization Change Report Feasibility Study, available on the SFWMD website: https://www.sfwmd.gov/our-work/cerp-project-planning/eaa- reservoir.
Certifications and Exemptions Under the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, 1972
The Department of the Navy (DoN) is amending its certifications and exemptions under the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, 1972 (72 COLREGS), to reflect that the Deputy Assistant Judge Advocate General (DAJAG) (Admiralty and Maritime Law) has determined that USS WICHITA (LCS 13) is a vessel of the Navy which, due to its special construction and purpose, cannot fully comply with certain provisions of the 72 COLREGS without interfering with its special function as a naval ship. The intended effect of this rule is to warn mariners in waters where 72 COLREGS apply.

Garnishment of Pay of Naval Military and Civilian Personnel for Collection of Child Support and Alimony
This final rule removes the DoD's regulation concerning garnishment of pay of Naval military and civilian personnel and collection of child support and alimony. It has been determined that this rule is duplicative of 5 CFR part 581, ``Processing Garnishment Orders for Child Support and/or Alimony.'' Therefore, this rule can be removed from the CFR.
