United States Navy Restricted Area, Key West Harbor, at U.S. Naval Base, Key West, FL
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) is proposing to amend the existing regulations for a restricted area at Naval Air Station Key West (NASKW). Naval Air Station Key West maintains ammunition magazines on Fleming Island that have explosive safety quality-distance (ESQD) requirements in place to ensure reasonable safety from serious injury should there be a magazine fire or explosion. The current restricted area regulations do not adequately cover the ESQD requirements. This amendment to the existing regulation is necessary to protect the public from potentially hazardous conditions that may exist as a result of military use of the area.
