[46 Pa.B. 5957]
[Saturday, September 17, 2016]
This notice is published under section 306(d)(14) of the Federal Coastal Zone Management Act of 1972 (16 U.S.C.A. § 1455(d)(14)), regarding public participation during consistency determinations. The Department of Environmental Protection (Department), Coastal Resources Management Program (CRMP) has received notice that the United States Department of the Navy is proposing Uniform National Discharge Standards (UNDS) for Vessels of the Armed Forces—Phase II Batch One.
The UNDS mirrors, as appropriate, the United States Environmental Protection Agency's National Pollution Discharge System Vessel General Permit which applies to commercial vessel discharges. The proposed rule was published at 79 FR 6117 (February 3, 2014).
This project is subject to Department review for Federal consistency because it is a Federal agency activity and will have reasonably foreseeable effects on the Commonwealth's coastal resources or uses.
In accordance with National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) regulations in 15 CFR Part 930, Subpart C (relating to consistency for Federal agency activities), the United States Department of the Navy has determined that the proposed activity will be conducted in a manner consistent with the applicable enforceable policies of the Commonwealth's NOAA-approved CRMP. Interested parties may request a copy of the Federal Consistency Determination from the Department contact listed as follows.
Questions regarding this review should be directed to Matthew Walderon, Federal Consistency Coordinator, (717) 772-2196 or RA-Fed_Consistency@pa.gov.
The Department will consider all comments received on or before October 3, 2016, before issuing a final Federal consistency concurrence or objection. Comments submitted by facsimile will not be accepted. Comments, including comments submitted by e-mail, must include the originator's name and address. Commentators are urged to submit comments using the Department's online eComment system at www.ahs.dep.pa.gov/eComment. Written comments should be submitted by e-mail to email@example.com or by mail to the Department of Environmental Protection, Compacts and Commissions Office, 400 Market Street, P.O. Box 8465, Harrisburg, PA 17101-8465.
