Special Local Regulation, Hydrocross, Lake Dora; Tavares, FL
The Coast Guard is establishing special local regulations on the waters of Lake Dora in Tavares, Florida, during the Hydrocross, a series of high-speed personal watercraft races. The event is scheduled to take place on September 13 and 14, 2014. Approximately 50 vessels are anticipated to participate in the races.

Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Boeuf Bayou, Amelia, LA
The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Railway Company swing span bridge across the Boeuf Bayou, mile 10.2, in Amelia, St. Mary Parish, Louisiana. The deviation is necessary to complete scheduled maintenance and repairs for the continued safe operation of the bridge. This deviation allows the bridge to remain in the closed-to-navigation position for seven consecutive hours.
Safety Zone, Tarague Basin; Anderson AFB, GU
The Coast Guard is establishing a safety zone in the waters off of Tarague Basin, Anderson AFB, Guam, for the safety of waterway users, during U.S. Air Force explosive ordnance disposal operations. The U.S. Air Force plans to engage in explosive ordnance disposal operations starting in August 2014, and continue to do so at varying times weekly, for an indefinite duration. The safety zone is activated, and therefore subject to enforcement, during these operations. When the safety zone is activated for enforcement, all entry into the safety zone (including vessels and persons) is prohibited except by permission from the Captain of the Port or his designated representative. The Coast Guard is implementing this interim rule for the safety of mariners; we encourage comments on this rulemaking as to how we may improve the rule.
