Corrections

    1. Because of the variations in the nature of the incidents and the 
approaches taken to them, PHMSA intended to describe separately the 
incidents and studies done in various states. In order to clarify the 
separation in the bulletized lists of incidents and studies, in the 
Federal Register of March 4, 2008, in FR Doc. E8-4155 correct the 
preamble text by adding a bullet symbol () in the following 
places:
    a. On page 11696, in the second column, before the sentence 
``Between 1980 and 2007, seven incidents occurred in Texas.''
    b. On page 11697, in the first column, before the sentence ``A 
number of other studies, tests, and repair, or replacement programs, 
some of them voluntary, have been conducted in other States.''
    2. In the Federal Register of March 4, 2008, in FR Doc. E8-4155, on 
page 11697, in the second column, in item 4 of the advisory bulletin, 
correct the description of the affected pipe in the first sentence to 
read ``pipe sizes between \1/2\-inch CTS (Copper Tube Size) and two-
inch IPS (Iron Pipe Size)''.
