Security Zone; Severn River and College Creek, Annapolis, MD
The Coast Guard is proposing to establish a permanent security zone on certain waters of the Severn River and College Creek in Maryland. This action is necessary in order to ensure the security of high-ranking public officials and safeguard the public at large against terrorist acts or incidents during the U.S. Naval Academy graduation ceremony, held annually on the Friday before the Memorial Day holiday in May. This rule prohibits vessels and people from entering the security zone and requires vessels and persons in the security zone to depart the zone, unless specifically exempt under the provisions in this rule or granted specific permission from the Coast Guard Captain of the Port of Baltimore.
Special Local Regulations for Marine Events; St. Mary's River, St. Mary's City, MD
The Coast Guard proposes to temporarily change the enforcement period for the ``St. Mary's Seahawk Sprint'' held annually on the waters of the St. Mary's River, near St. Mary's City, Maryland. This proposed rule is intended to restrict vessel traffic in portions of the St. Mary's River and is necessary to provide for the safety of life on navigable waters during the event.
