Safety Zone, Schuylkill River; Philadelphia, PA
Document Number: 2014-14631
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-06-24
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone in the waters of the Schuylkill River around the Point Breeze docks of Philadelphia Energy Solutions for a period of six months, from July 5, 2014 to January 5, 2015. The safety zone is necessary when a barge with a beam (width) up to 80 feet moors at the Philadelphia Energy Solutions Point Breeze docks Deloach pier, reducing the horizontal clearance of the channel by as much as 30 feet when a barge is moored at the facility. This rule will allow the Coast Guard to restrict all vessel traffic through the safety zone when a barge having a beam of 65 to 80 feet is scheduled to moor at the facility. The Coast Guard is seeking comments on the potential impact to vessel traffic on the Schuylkill River that may result from 30 feet of reduced horizontal channel clearance when a barge is moored at the Point Breeze docks of Philadelphia Energy Solutions in the Schuylkill River. The Coast Guard intends to finalize this interim rule after considering, and incorporating to the extent appropriate, any comments from the public.
