necessity may require for the protection of life and property, or

of operations of the United States in channel improvement, covering

conviction thereof in any district court of the United States

within whose territorial jurisdiction such offense may have been

committed, shall be punished by a fine not exceeding $500, or by

CODIFICATION

The first paragraph of this section is from section 4 of act Aug.

18, 1894, popularly known as the "River and Harbor Act of 1894", as

amended.

As originally enacted, said section 4 made it the duty of the

Secretary of War to prescribe rules and regulations for the use,

administration, and navigation of any or all canals and similar

works of navigation owned, operated, or maintained by the United

States, and provided for the posting of such regulations and the

punishment of violations thereof.

Said section 4 was amended by section 11 of act June 13, 1902,

principally by adding to the original section provisions

authorizing the Secretary also to prescribe regulations to govern

the speed and movement of vessels and other water craft in any

public navigable channel which had been improved under authority of

Congress, whenever in his judgment such regulations were necessary

to protect such improved channel from injury or to prevent

interference with the operations of the United States in improving

navigable waters or injury to any plant that might be employed in

such operations.

Section 4 was also amended by section 7 of act Aug. 8, 1917, to

read as set forth in the first paragraph hereof.

The last paragraph of this section is from section 6 of act June

13, 1902. Said section 6 is also the source of the last proviso in

section 499 of this title.

exercise the same for such purposes; and in case any such offense

be committed beyond the territorial jurisdiction of any court

having jurisdiction thereof, the offense shall be deemed and held

FINDINGS

Pub. L. 106-32, Sec. 1, June 1, 1999, 113 Stat. 115, provided

that: "The Congress finds the following:

"(1) The canal known as the James River and Kanawha Canal

played an important part in the economic development of the

Commonwealth of Virginia and the City of Richmond.

"(2) The canal ceased to operate as a functioning waterway in

the conduct of commerce in the late 1800s.

"(3) Portions of the canal have been found by a Federal

district court to be nonnavigable.

"(4) The restored portion of the canal will be utilized to

provide entertainment and education to visitors and will play an

important part in the economic development of downtown Richmond.

"(5) The restored portion of the canal will not be utilized for

general public boating, and will be restricted to activities

similar to those conducted on similar waters in San Antonio,

Texas.

"(6) The continued classification of the canal as a navigable

waterway based upon historic usage that ceased more than 100

years ago does not serve the public interest and is unnecessary

to protect public safety.

"(7) Congressional action is required to clarify that the canal

is no longer to be considered a navigable waterway for purposes

of subtitle II of title 46, United States Code."
