I SPECIAL NOTICES

 

STELLWAGEN BANK NATIONAL MARINE SANCTUARY

The severely endangered Right Whale is a regular visitor to Massachusetts coastal waters. It is a slow moving animal that is prone to being involved in collisions with vessels. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has designated Cape Cod Bay and the region east of Cape Cod as Critical Habitat for this species, and has identified the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary as an additional area of importance to the Right Whale. Vessel operators are reminded to use caution around Right Whales. Intentional close approach to Right Whales is prohibited and may result in a violation of federal or Massachusetts state law. The coordinates of the three federal areas of special concern are:

Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary - bounded by: 42 45 59N, 70 13 01W; 42 05 35N, 70 02 08W; 42 07 44N, 70 28 15W;

42 32 53N, 70 35 52W; and 42 39 04N, 70 30 11W.

Critical Habitat Area/Cape Cod Bay - bounded by: 42 04 48N, 70 10 00W; 42 12 00N, 70 15 00W; 42 12 00N, 70 30 00W; 41 46 48N, 70 30 00W and on the south and east by the interior shore line of Cape Cod, MA.

Critical Habitat Area/Great South Channel - bounded by: 41 40 00N, 69 45 00W; 41 00 00N, 69 05 00W; 41 38 00N, 68 13 00W; and

42 10 00N, 68 31 00W. LNM 24/96 (CGD1)

 

LIQUEFIED NATURAL GAS SHIPMENTS IN THE PORT OF BOSTON

The Distrigas Facility in Everett, MA expects to continue receiving shipments of Liquefied Natural Gas from the National Algerian Petroleum Corporation. The shipments will be delivered throughout the year, every two to three weeks during October through March and every six to eight weeks April through September by Algerian and U.S. Flag LNG tankships. The Captain of the Port will activate a moving safety zone around each vessel as it transits Boston Harbor. In accordance with the regulations in 33 CFR 165.110, all vessels must remain clear of the main ship channel two miles ahead and one mile astern of the LNG tankers during the transit. The safety zone will remain in effect around each vessel while the vessel is moored to the Distrigas facility for the duration of cargo off loading operations. In accordance with the regulations in 33 CFR 165.110, all vessels must remain clear of the moored LNG tanker at a distance of at least 50 yards. Marine Safety Broadcasts will be made every 30 minutes advising the vessel's location while each LNG tanker transits the Port of Boston. Notification of the broadcasts will be made on VHF-FM Channel 16, and the actual broadcasts will be made on VHF-FM Channel 22. The Captain of the Port will keep the port community informed of LNG tanker arrival times and associated harbor closures. Questions should be directed to the Port Safety and Security Division of the Marine Safety Office at (617) 223-3000.

MA - GEORGES BANK AND NANTUCKET SHOALS

Due to beach erosion, on or about 13 JUNE through 1 NOV 1996 the light tower at Highland Light (LLNR 500) will be moved. During this

relocation process, a temporary light will be established approximately 80ft. east of the existing light tower. The temporary light will remain Fl

W 5s, but will be at a reduced intensity and off during daylight hours. Chart(s) 13260, 13267, 13249, 13246, 13200, 13009, 13006, 13003

SEWAGE DISCHARGE RESTRICTIONS - HUDSON RIVER

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recently approved two segments of the Hudson River as No Discharge Zones (NDZs). Zone one extends from the Troy-Waterford Bridge (126th Street Bridge) to Lock #2; zone two covers from Roseton (river mile 65) to the southern tip of Houghtaling island (river mile 129). This regulation tookeffect beginning Apr. 11, 1996. After this date discharge from type I and type II marine sanitation devices (MSDs) in the Hudson River from 3 statute miles north of the Hamilton Fish Newburgh Beacon Bridge up river to the end of zone two will be illegal. Boaters having types I and II MSDs are urged to either convert to type III MSDs (with holding tanks) or to use sanitary facilities on shore or leave the NDZ before discharging. Mariners can obtain a list of pumpout facilities by contacting the NYS DEC, Region 3, Division of Water, L. Wilson at (914) 332-1835 ext. 358.Chart(s): 12347, 12348, 14786 LNM 24/96 (CGD1)

 

TEMPORARY SHELLFISHING BAN

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation will be prohibiting the harvest of shellfish from 4 July - 9 July, 1996. This designation is necessary to protect public health and is required due to the potential for sewage discharges from sanitation devices on the large numbers of transient vessels which will anchor and remain overnight . The following three areas will be affected by this temporary closure:

1. All waters of West Harbor in Oyster Bay, lying west of Centre Island and east of a line extending northerly from the northwesternmost point of land approximately 600 yards north of Brickyard Point (on Centre Island) to the westernmost point of the beach pavilion at Centre Island Beach.

2. The Sand Hole, within Caumsett State Park, located near Llyod Point.

3. All of Point Jefferson Harbor located easterly of the northernmost point of Strong Point

For further information please contact the NYSDEC Bureau of Shellfisheries at (516)444-0480 or 0475. Chart(s) 12352, 12362, 12365, 13214 LNM 24/96 (CGD1)

NEW YORK - LONG ISLAND SOUND - HEMPSTEAD HARBOR TO TALLMAN ISLAND - NEW ROCHELLE HARBOR - Notice of Proposed Rulemaking - At the request of Westchester County, the Coast Guard is considering a change to the regulations governing the Glen Island drawbridge across New Rochelle Harbor, at mile 0.8, New Rochelle, New York, by permitting the bridge not to have personnel crew the bridge from 1 May to 31 October, between 12 midnight and 8:00 a.m. and from 1 November to 30 April, between 8:00 p.m. and 8:00 a.m. This change to the regulations is being proposed because there have been few requests for bridge openings during these time periods. This action should relieve the bridge owner of the burden of having a person constantly at the bridge to open the draw, and should still provide for the reasonable needs of navigation. Interested parties are requested to submit their views in writing on or before 12 July 1996, on the proposed regulation change, to the office of Commander (obr), First Coast Guard District, Bldg. 135A, Governors Island, NY, NY 10004-5073. Copies of Public Notices 1-878 may also be obtained at this address.
