SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Notice is hereby given that a petition has been received from the State of New York requesting a determination by the Regional Administrator, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency—Region 2, pursuant to section 312(f)(3) of Public Law 92-500 as amended by Public Law 95-217 and Public Law 100-4, that adequate facilities for the safe and sanitary removal and treatment of sewage from all vessels are reasonably available for South Shore Estuary Reserve (SSER) and its harbors, bays and creeks within the following boundaries:

East Rockaway Inlet, approach to Reynolds Channel, flashing green buoy (N “9”)

N40°-35.5′

W73°-44.9′

N40°-45.8′

W72°-45.3′

Shinnecock Inlet, flashing green tower on west jetty terminus

N40°-50.2′

W72°-28.7′

The SSER encompasses 110,720 acres of open water and intertidal area. The waterbodies included in the SSER are Shinnecock Bay (East and West), Quantuck Bay, Moriches Bay (East and West), Bellport Bay, Patchogue Bay, Nicoll Bay, Great South Bay (West, East and Great Cove), South Oyster Bay, East Bay Complex, Middle Bay Complex and Western South Shore Bay.

New York has provided documentation indicating the SSER vessel population and the number of pumpouts for each embayment. Shinnecock Bay—East is serviced by 3 pumpouts and has a vessel population of 864 (288 vessels per pumpout). Shinnecock Bay—West is serviced by 1pumpout and has a vessel population of 1841 (1841 vessels per pumpout). Quantuck Bay is serviced by 1 pumpout and has a vessel population of 363 (363 vessels per pumpout). Moriches Bay—East is serviced by 2 pumpouts and has a vessel population of 951 (476 vessels per pumpout). Moriches Bay—West is serviced by 5 pumpouts and has a vessel population of 1829 (366 vessels per pumpout). Bellport Bay is serviced by 2 pumpouts and has a vessel population of 336 (168 vessels per pumpout). Patchogue Bay is serviced by 11 pumpouts and has a vessel population of 2814 (256 vessels per pumpout). Nicoll Bay is serviced by 6 pumpouts and has a vessel population of 1765 (294 vessels per pumpout). Great South Bay—East and Great Cove is serviced by 7 pumpouts and has a vessel population of 1810 (259 vessels per pumpout). Great South Bay—West is serviced by 12 pumpouts and has a vessel population of 5066 (422 vessels per pumpout). South Oyster Bay is serviced by 5 pumpouts and has a vessel population of 1453 (291 vessels per pumpout). East Bay Complex is serviced by 4 pumpouts and has a vessel population of 747 (187 vessels per pumpout). Middle Bay Complex is serviced by 8 pumpouts and has a vessel population of 3392 (424 vessels per pumpout). Western South Shore Bay is serviced by 2 pumpouts and has a vessel population of 705 (352 vessels per pumpout).

The criterion established by the Clean Vessel Act regarding an adequate number of pumpouts per vessel population is 1 pumpout per 300—600 vessels. All areas of the SSER meet or exceed this criterion with the exception of Shinnecock Bay—West, which has one pumpout per 1841vessels. When facilities in this embayment are added to facilities in the adjacent waters (Shinnecock Bay—East and Quantuck Bay) a total of 5 pumpouts service a vessel population of 2492. The ratio is one pumpout per 498 vessels, which meets the criterion.
