Dry Cargo Residue Discharges in the Great Lakes; Notice of Public Meeting
The Coast Guard announces that public meetings for the May 23, 2008 notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) on dry cargo residue discharges in the Great Lakes and its supporting Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) will be held in Duluth, Minnesota, and Cleveland, Ohio, in July 2008. The proposed rule would allow the continued discharge of certain non-toxic and non-hazardous bulk dry cargo residues in the Great Lakes. Existing prohibitions on discharges in certain areas would be continued, and additional sensitive and protected areas would be defined as no-discharge zones. Recordkeeping and reporting requirements would be imposed, and the voluntary use of measures to control residues would be encouraged.
