The Coast Guard is establishing a safety zone on the navigable waters of the San Diego Bay in support of a fireworks display for the Grand Opening of Lindbergh Airport Terminal Two West on August 8, 2013. This temporary safety zone is necessary to provide for the safety of the participants, crew, spectators, participating vessels, and other vessels and users of the waterway. Persons and vessels are prohibited from entering into, transiting through, or anchoring within this safety zone unless authorized by the Captain of the Port or his designated representative.
Safety Zones; Pacific Northwest Grain Handlers Association Facilities; Columbia and Willamette Rivers
Document Number: 2013-18983
Type: Rule
Date: 2013-08-06
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard has established temporary safety zones around the following Pacific Northwest Grain Handlers Association facilities: the Columbia Grain facility on the Willamette River in Portland, OR, the United Grain Corporation facility on the Columbia River in Vancouver, WA, the Temco Irving facility on the Willamette River in Portland, OR, the Temco Kalama facility on the Columbia River in Kalama, WA, and the Louis Dreyfus Commodities facility on the Willamette River in Portland, OR. These safety zones extend approximately between the navigable channel and the shoreline of the facility described. These safety zones have been established to ensure that on-water protest activities near these facilities do not create hazardous navigation conditions for vessels protesting, transiting in the navigable channel, or attempting to moor at the facilities and that any on-water activities do not create hazardous conditions while grain- shipment vessels are moored at the facilities. This rule revises the safety zones already promulgated to add one additional grain facility, respond to comments already received, and to correct typographical errors in previous versions of the safety zones at the Columbia Grain and United Grain Corporation facilities.
