The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone in the waters of Agat Bay and Outer Apra Harbor, Guam. The zone will encompass two distinct areas, each area bounded by a circle with a 300-meter radius on the surface and a 2750-meter radius underwater, centered at 13[deg]23[min]00[sec] N and 144[deg]35[min]00[sec] E (NAD 1983) and 13[deg]27[min]42[sec] N and 144[deg]38[min]30[sec] E (NAD 1983) respectively. This safety zone is necessary to protect mariners who would otherwise transit or be within the affected area from possible safety hazards associated with an underwater detonation operation. Entry of persons or vessels into this temporary safety zone is prohibited unless authorized by the Captain of the Port.
