Coast Guard March 22, 2010 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Safety Zone; Invista Inc Facility Docks, Victoria Barge Canal, Victoria, TX
Document Number: 2010-6161
Type: Rule
Date: 2010-03-22
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard is establishing a safety zone for a partial blockage of the Victoria Barge Canal when the Invista Inc facility is offloading cargo from an oversized barge, which is approximately 380 feet in length. Commercial traffic will be prohibited from passing the barge while it is offloading cargo because the navigable width of the channel will be substantially reduced. The safety zone is necessary to help ensure the safety of the maritime public during these transfer operations.
Special Local Regulation, Fran Schnarr Open Water Championships, Huntington Bay, NY
Document Number: 2010-6159
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2010-03-22
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
This document supplements the Coast Guard's October 6, 2009 proposal to establish a permanent Special Local Regulation on the navigable waters of Huntington Bay, New York due to the annual Fran Schnarr Open Water Championships. The Special Local Regulation is required to provide for the safety of life by protecting swimmers and their safety craft from the hazards imposed by marine traffic. This supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking will reduce the size of the proposed regulated area, clarify the course description and revise the anticipated enforcement period of the special local regulation.
