This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

Notice of availability.
The NPS is proposing to adopt a DO setting forth the policies and procedures under which NPS will develop and implement the Dam Safety Program. The NPS maintains an inventory of NPS owned and non-NPS owned dams that range greatly in size, complexity and potential for failure. This DO summarizes the NPS's policies and procedures for meeting Federal requirements as codified at 33 U.S.C. 467 and as required per Departmental Manual 245 and 753 and NPS Management Policies 2006. The DO will help ensure that all necessary actions are taken to identify NPS owned and non-NPS owned dams which impact parks, and inspect, operate, maintain, and reduce risk for NPS owned dams.
Written comments will be accepted until August 28, 2009.
Draft DO #40 is available on the Internet at http://www.nps.gov/policy/DO-40draft.htm. Requests for copies of, and written comments on, the DO should be sent to Commander Nate Tatum, Dam Safety Program, Park Facilities Management Division, 1201 Eye (I) St., Washington, DC 20005, or to his Internet address: firstname.lastname@example.org.Start Further Info

When the NPS adopts documents containing new policy or procedural requirements that may affect parties outside the NPS, the documents are first made available for public review and comment before being adopted. The draft DO covers topics such as the authorities and guidance for the Dam Safety program; NPS's Dam Safety policy; and elements of the Dam Safety Program (e.g., action, management review, and hazard potential classification, dam safety inventory, inspection, emergency action plans, operation and maintenance of dams, corrective action, facility security plans, roles and responsibilities, etc).
