The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) published a document in the Federal Register on July 23, 2009 (74 FR 36400), revising the restricted areas at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Patrick Air Force Base (AFB), Florida. The revision included the establishment of a restricted area within the waters of the Atlantic Ocean offshore of the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. The regulation included information regarding the boundaries of the new restricted area, including a reference to the offshore (eastern) boundary as being 1.5 miles offshore of the mean high water line. The final rule did not reference the type of mile unit to be used for the boundary line of the restricted area. The intent was to use nautical miles as the unit type. Since the use of nautical miles changes the coordinates for the northeast and southeast corner points of the restricted area, we are also correcting those coordinates. This document corrects the final regulation by revising this section.

On July 23, 2009 (74 FR 36400), the Corps published a document in the Federal Register establishing a new restricted area at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Patrick AFB, Florida. Section 334.595(a) of the final rule did not specify the type of mile unit to use to define the area. Nautical miles are to be used to define this restricted area. Since the use of nautical miles changes the coordinates for the northeast and southeast corner points of this restricted Start Printed Page 58849area, we are also correcting those coordinates. In § 334.595(a) the coordinates of the northeast and southeast corner points of the restricted area are latitude 28°35.716′ N, longitude 80°32.938′ W and latitude 28°24.187′ N, longitude 80°33.443′ W, respectively.Start List of Subjects
