Background, Purpose and Legal Basis On March 2, 2018, the Coast Guard published a Test Deviation entitled Petaluma River, Haystack Landing (Petaluma), CA in the Federal Register (83 FR 8936). We received five comments on this rule. Four of the five comments submitted, concerning the test deviation, addressed the 2-hour advance notification. The commenters stated that the lengthy advance notification would be a burden on waterway users. The fifth comment was directed at the structural deficiency of a number of dams in the United States; this comment is not pertinent to this deviation. Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit (SMART) owns the Northwestern Pacific railroad bridge across the Petaluma River, mile 12.4, at Haystack Landing (Petaluma), CA. The bridge has a vertical clearance of 3.6 feet above mean high water in the closed-tonavigation position and unlimited vertical clearance in the open-tonavigation position, and currently operates under 33 CFR 117.187(a). The duration of this initial test deviation was 90 days. During this initial test, according to drawtender logs, 96 vessels requested openings and passed through the bridge. At no time was a 2-hour notice given to the E:\FR\FM\13AUR1.SGM 13AUR1
