Notice of Lodging of Consent Decree Pursuant to the Rivers and 
Harbors Act of 1899

    In accordance with Departmental Policy, 28 CFR 50.7, notice is 
hereby given that a proposed consent decree in United States v. PT 
Marine, Inc. d/b/a Ryder's Cove Board Yard, Civil No. 98-10368-PBS (D. 
Mass.), was lodged with the United States District Court for the 
District of Massachusetts on March 2, 1998. The proposed decree 
concerns alleged violations of section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act 
of 1899, 33 U.S.C. 403, resulting from the unlawful construction and 
maintenance of 73 moorings in Ryder's Cove, Chatham, Massachusetts. A

since 1994 and the remaining 20 moorings were added in 1996.

realized from the rental of the unlawful moorings and would permanently 
enjoin PT Marine, Inc. from committing future violations of the Rivers 
and Harbors Act of 1899. The decree would also would require PT Marine, 
Inc. to apply for a Corps permit to retain the existing structures and 
to abide by the Corps' permitting decision, to include removal of the
