Document Number: E7-25340
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-12-31
Agency: Saint Lawrence Seaway Development Corporation, Department of Transportation
The Saint Lawrence Seaway Development Corporation (SLSDC) and the St. Lawrence Seaway Management Corporation (SLSMC) of Canada, under international agreement, jointly publish and presently administer the St. Lawrence Seaway Regulations and Rules (Practices and Procedures in Canada) in their respective jurisdictions. Under agreement with the SLSMC, the SLSDC is proposing to amend the joint regulations by updating the Regulations and Rules in various categories. The proposed changes would update the following sections of the Regulations and Rules: Condition of Vessels; Seaway Navigation; and, Information and Reports. The SLSDC is seeking to harmonize the ballast water requirements for vessels transiting the U.S. waters of the Seaway with those currently required by Canadian authorities for transit in waters under Canadian jurisdiction of the Seaway. These proposed amendments are necessary to take account of updated procedures and would eliminate the confusion regarding the requirements for saltwater flushing in the binational waters of the Seaway System.

Tariff of Tolls
Document Number: E7-1535
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-01-31
Agency: Saint Lawrence Seaway Development Corporation, Department of Transportation
The Saint Lawrence Seaway Development Corporation (SLSDC) and the St. Lawrence Seaway Management Corporation (SLSMC) of Canada, under international agreement, jointly publish and presently administer the St. Lawrence Seaway Tariff of Tolls in their respective jurisdictions. The Tariff sets forth the level of tolls assessed on all commodities and vessels transiting the facilities operated by the SLSDC and the SLSMC. The SLSDC is revising its regulations to reflect the fees and charges levied by the SLSMC in Canada starting in the 2007 navigation season, which are effective only in Canada. An amendment to increase the minimum charge per lock for those vessels that are not pleasure craft or subject in Canada to tolls under items 1 and 2 of the Tariff for full or partial transit of the Seaway will apply in the U.S. Also, the SLSDC is changing the toll charged per pleasure craft using the U.S. locks from $25 U.S. or $30 Canadian to $30 U.S. or $30 Canadian. Several minor editorial corrections are being made in Sec. 402.3, ``Interpretation.'' and Sec. 402.6, ``Description and weight of cargo.'' (See Supplementary Information.)
