FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: The Atlantic Beach Bridge, across Reynolds Channel, mile 0.4, at Lawrence, New York, has a vertical clearance in the closed position of 25 feet at mean high water and 30 feet at mean low water. The existing drawbridge operation regulations are listed at 33 CFR 117.799(e). The owner of the bridge, Nassau County Bridge Authority, requested a temporary deviation to facilitate electrical and structural rehabilitation at the bridge. The waterway has commercial and seasonal recreational vessels of various sizes. Under this temporary deviation the draw of the Atlantic Beach Bridge at mile 0.4, across Reynolds Channel shall open on signal as follows: (1) From June 9, 2013 through September 30, 2013, Monday through Friday, the draw may operate a single span on signal, every two hours, on the even hour, between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. From 8 p.m. through 6 a.m. the draw may operate a single span on signal. On weekends and holidays from Friday at 8 p.m. through Monday at 6 a.m. the bridge shall open both spans every hour on the hour.

The Coast Guard contacted all known commercial waterway users regarding this deviation and no objections were received. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the bridge must return to its regular operating schedule immediately at the end of the designated time period. This deviation from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35. wreier-aviles on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with RULES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:08 Jun 10, 2013 Jkt 229001 Dated: June 3, 2013.

Sokalzuk, Captain, U.S. Coast Guard, Acting Commander, Eighth Coast Guard District. On September 16, 2004, a mudslide resulted from Hurricane Ivan’s storm surge that toppled the Mississippi Canyon (MC) 20 Platform A. The platform’s wells were covered by more than 100-feet of mud and sediment. As a result of structural damage, plumes containing crude oil and gas have been discharging into the Gulf of Mexico, creating a sheen on the surface of the water. The responsible party for this incident has undertaken an operation to install a containment dome over the affected area, which would catch the oil rising from the sea floor. Many vessels continue to operate in the affected area. Anchoring, mooring, or loitering in the area above the containment dome could potentially damage the dome, or reduce its effectiveness. C. Need for Correction The Coast Guard published a document in the Federal Register on April 29, 2013, for this Regulated Navigation Area (RNA). (78 FR 24987). As noted in that document, the center of this RNA was established to surround an oil wellhead that was leaking oil after structural damage from a hurricane and mudslide. However, the latitude and longitude of that oil platform were incorrectly noted. The correct center of the regulated navigation area established by the interim rule is 28°56′12.619″ N, 088°58′10.303″ W. This correction revises the latitude and longitude for the center of this RNA to accurately reflect the location of the oil wellhead.

B. Background

    On September 16, 2004, a mudslide resulted from Hurricane Ivan's 
storm surge that toppled the Mississippi Canyon (MC) 20 Platform A. The 
platform's wells were covered by more than 100-feet of mud and 
sediment. As a result of structural damage, plumes containing crude oil 
and gas have been discharging into the Gulf of Mexico, creating a sheen 
on the surface of the water.
    The responsible party for this incident has undertaken an operation 
to install a containment dome over the affected area, which would catch 
the oil rising from the sea floor. Many vessels continue to operate in 
the affected area. Anchoring, mooring, or loitering in the area above 
the containment dome could potentially damage the dome, or reduce its 
effectiveness.

C. Need for Correction

    The Coast Guard published a document in the Federal Register on 
April 29, 2013, for this Regulated Navigation Area (RNA). (78 FR 
24987). As noted in that document, the center of this RNA was 
established to surround an oil wellhead that was leaking oil after 
structural damage from a hurricane and mudslide. However, the latitude 
and longitude of that oil platform were incorrectly noted. The correct 
center of the regulated navigation area established by the interim rule 
is 28[deg]56'12.619'' N, 088[deg]58'10.303'' W. This correction revises 
the latitude and longitude for the center of this RNA to accurately 
reflect the location of the oil wellhead.
