Safety Zone: City of West Haven Fireworks, Bradley Point, West Haven, CT
Document Number: E7-22613
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-11-20
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard proposes to amend the permanent safety zone for the City of West Haven Fireworks by establishing the zone around a fireworks launch site at the approximate position 41[deg]15'7'' N, 72[deg]57'26'' W. This change to the zone would allow the zone to be established around the launch site, whether it is on a barge or on shore. Establishment of this safety zone is necessary to protect recreational vessel traffic, spectators, and those operating the fireworks display.
Appendix to Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards
Document Number: 07-5585
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-11-20
Agency: Department of Homeland Security
This final rule revises the list of chemicals of interest, or COI, which the Department of Homeland Security (DHS or the Department) included as Appendix A to the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards Interim Final Rule. Appendix A lists chemicals of interest and screening threshold quantities, or STQs. Any facility that possesses (or later comes into possession of) the listed chemicals in quantities that meet or exceed the STQ for any applicable security issue must complete and submit a Top-Screen. This will assist the Department in determining whether a facility presents a high level of security risk. In this final rule, DHS, among other things: (i) Adjusts the STQs for certain COI; (ii) defines the specific security issue or issues implicated by each chemical of interest, and in some cases, establishes different STQs for COI based upon the security issue presented; and (iii) adds provisions that instruct facilities on how to calculate the quantities of COI that they have in their possession. These refinements to Appendix A will assist the Department in more precisely identifying facilities that may be designated as high risk, while reducing the burden on facilities that possess chemicals in smaller amounts.
