On March 28, 2022, the Wood Island Life Saving Station Association notified the Coast Guard that it will be conducting a fireworks display from 9 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on August 6, 2022. The fireworks are to be launched from anchored floats on the Piscataqua River located approximately 1000 yards northwest of Fort Foster, Kittery, ME in position 43°04′23.9″ N, 070°41′57.4″ W (NAD83). Hazards from firework displays include accidental discharge of fireworks, dangerous projectiles, and falling hot embers or other debris. The Captain of the Port Northern New England (COTP) has determined that potential hazards associated with the fireworks to be used in this display would be a safety concern for anyone within a 500-foot radius of the fireworks launch floats.

The purpose of this rulemaking is to ensure the safety of vessels on the navigable waters within a 500-foot radius of the firework launch floats before, during, and after the scheduled event. The Coast Guard is proposing this rulemaking under authority in 46 U.S.C. 70034 (previously 33 U.S.C. 1231).
