Background and Purpose

The Coast Guard published a temporary final rule in the Federal Register on October 12, 2001, (66 FR 52038), to create a security zone in response to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States. We are changing the location of the western boundary of the security zone.

Need for Correction

Since publication, Captain of the Port Toledo has learned that a western boundary located more easterly or closer to the nuclear plant would allow local home-owners full beach access, including by recreational vessel. This readjustment in no ways compromises the intent of the original security zone. The regulation was published in response to the terrorist's attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on September 11, 2001. The security zone is intended to protect the life, property, and national security of U.S. citizens. These factors were considered along with the impact on local homeowners and recreational vessels in reestablishing the boundaries of this security zone.
