METHODOLOGY FOR DETERMINING SIZE AND CONFIGURATION OF A DEEPWATER PORT SAFETY ZONE

This report documents the method that will be used by the Coast Guard to consider navigational safety and environmental factors in defining a "Safety Zone" around a deepwater port. The methodology has been developed in response to Section 10(d) of the Deepwater Port Act of 1974 (Public Law 93-627) and in consideration of regulations pursuant thereto (33 CFR 150, Subpart C). The report also lists the various types of data required for the determination of a safety zone using the method described, and suggests appropriate formats for data presentation. Thus, in addition to providing a checklist for the application of the methodology, the specified data requirements could be used as guidelines by prospective deepwater port license applicants.
