Special Local Regulation; Ohio River, New Martinsville, WV
The Coast Guard is establishing a special local regulation for all navigable waters of the Ohio River between mile markers 127.5 and 128.5. The special local regulation is needed to protect regatta participants, the public, and the marine environment from potential hazards created by the regatta. This special local regulation establishes a Patrol Commander and restricts movement and anchoring of spectator and non-participant vessels during the time of the event.
Safety Zone; Sabine River, Orange, TX
The Coast Guard is proposing to establish a temporary safety zone for certain navigable waters of the Sabine River, extending the entire width of the river, adjacent to the public boat ramp located in Orange, TX. The safety zone is necessary to protect persons and vessels from hazards associated with a high-speed boat race competition in Orange, TX. Entry of vessels or persons into this zone would be prohibited unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Marine Safety Unit Port Arthur or a designated representative. We invite your comments on this proposed rulemaking.
