The Coast Guard is proposing to establish temporary special local regulations for certain waters of Back River.

This proposed rulemaking would prohibit persons and vessels from entering the regulated area unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Maryland-National Capital Region or the Coast Guard Event Patrol Commander.
