Title: ●Notice of Proposed Rulemaking for the Proposed Lake Erie Quadrangle National Marine Sanctuary 

NOAA's Office of National Marine Sanctuaries is considering designating a new national marine sanctuary in eastern Lake Erie adjacent to Pennsylvania. Erie County, Pennsylvania submitted a nomination for this area in 2015. The nomination provides a description of the underwater cultural and historical resources in the region, the potential benefits of a national marine sanctuary designation, recommendations for management of the sanctuary, and a proposed sanctuary boundary. NOAA is proposing sanctuary designation to recognize the national significance of the area's historical, archaeological, and cultural resources and to manage this special place as part of the National Marine Sanctuary System. NOAA is publishing a notice of proposed rulemaking that includes the following draft provisions for establishing the site: a sanctuary boundary, regulations, and terms of designation. NOAA invites the public to comment on this proposed rulemaking and will consider all submitted comments when preparing final regulations in the last phase of the sanctuary designation process.
