The Defense Health Agency proposes to alter an existing system of records, EDHA 24, entitled ``Defense and Veterans Eye Injury and Vision Registry (DVEIVR)'' in its inventory of record systems subject to the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended.

The Supervisor of Shipbuilding, Conversion and Repair, Gulf Coast, located in Pascagoula, Mississippi is responsible for United States Navy shipbuilding activities at the HII facility, USA located in Pascagoula, Mississippi. The proposed restricted area will be used for on-going construction when vessels are placed in the water.

Buzzards Bay and Adjacent Waters, Mass.; Danger Zones for Naval Operations; Corrections
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers published a document in the Federal Register on April 10, 1997 (62 FR 17550) amending its regulations to modify an existing danger zone in the waters of Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts. That document inadvertently did not include the proposed rule text that would prohibit entry into a portion of the danger zone. This document corrects the final rule by incorporating the intended prohibition of entry by persons or vessels into the designated area of the danger zone into Sec. 334.70(a)(2).
