National Park Service March 17, 2005 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Gulf Islands National Seashore, Personal Watercraft Use
Document Number: 05-4734
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-03-17
Agency: Department of the Interior, National Park Service
The National Park Service (NPS) is proposing to designate areas where personal watercraft (PWC) may be used in Gulf Islands National Seashore, Florida and Mississippi. This proposed rule implements the provisions of the NPS general regulations authorizing park areas to allow the use of PWC by promulgating a special regulation. The NPS Management Policies 2001 directs individual parks to determine whether PWC use is appropriate for a specific park area based on an evaluation of that area's enabling legislation, resources and values, other visitor uses, and overall management objectives.
