Coast Guard May 9, 2017 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Special Local Regulations; Safety Zones; Recurring Marine Events in Sector Columbia River
Document Number: 2017-09368
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-05-09
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard proposes to establish a special local regulation in the Coast Guard Captain of the Port Columbia River Zone for recurring marine events. During the recurring events, these regulated areas would be activated and would restrict vessels from portions of the waterway. These events were previously published as safety zones, temporary safety zones or individual regulated areas and have been revised and consolidated into a single as special local regulation in order to expedite public notification of events and ensure the protection of the maritime public from hazards associated with the annual events. We invite your comments on this proposed rulemaking.
