On July 1, 2009, we published a direct final rule entitled “Anchorage Regulations; Port of New York” in the Federal Register (74 FR 31354). That direct final rule revised the southern boundary of Anchorage Ground No. 20-F such that it no longer interferes with the expanded Port Jersey Federal Channel, removing authorization for vessels to mistakenly anchor within a Federal Channel, and therefore removing this hazardous condition for vessels navigating in this area. Additionally, the direct final rule updated two geographic coordinates that make up the northern boundary. The physical location of these points is unchanged; however slight changes in the coordinates reflect the update to datum NAD 83.

In the direct final rule we notified the public of our intent to make the rule effective on September 29, 2009, unless an adverse comment, or notice of intent to submit an adverse comment, was received on or before August 31, 2009. We did not receive any comments or notices of intent to submit an adverse comment on that rule. Therefore, under 33 CFR 1.05-55(d), we now confirm that the “Anchorage Regulations; Port of New York” rule became effective, as scheduled, on September 29, 2009.
