Special Local Regulations; Swim Around Charleston, Charleston, SC
The Coast Guard will enforce a special local regulation for the Swim Around Charleston on October 11, 2020, from 8:30 a.m. until 4 p.m., to provide for the safety of life on navigable waterways during this event. The Coast Guard will enforce a temporary moving safety zone during the Swim Around Charleston, a swimming race occurring on the Wando River, the Cooper River, Charleston Harbor, and the Ashley River, in Charleston, South Carolina. The temporary moving safety zone is necessary to protect swimmers, participant vessels, spectators, and the general public during the event. Persons and vessels would be prohibited from entering the safety zone unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Charleston or a designated representative.
Anchorage Regulations; Multiple Anchorages on the Mississippi River From MM 12 AHP to MM 85 AHP
We are requesting your comments regarding potential changes to multiple anchorages along the Mississippi River from mile marker (MM) 12 ahead of passes (AHP), to MM 85 AHP. Pilot associations have requested the Coast Guard to consider these potential changes because they believe there are currently not enough anchorage grounds along the river system to facilitate the safe anchorage of shallow and deep draft vessels. In this document we identify anchorage grounds locations that we have been requested to establish, expand or revise. We seek your comments on whether we should consider modifying our anchorage grounds regulations covering MM 12 AHP to MM 85 AHP, and if so, how.
Safety Zone; Neponset River, Boston/Milton, MA
The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone for navigable waters within a 100-yard radius of Granite Avenue Bridge over the Neponset River; construction vessels and machinery will restrict the center span of the bascule bridge preventing openings to conduct structural steel repairs. The safety zone is needed to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment from potential hazards created by repair work on the bridge. Entry of vessels or persons into this zone is prohibited unless specifically authorized by the Captain of the Port (COTP) Boston.
