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 10d 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.
