ACTION:

Correcting amendments.

SUMMARY:

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers published a document in the Federal Register on May 24, 2011 (76 FR 30024), amending its regulations to establish a restricted area in the waters of the Menominee River at the Marinette Marine Corporation Shipyard in Marinette, Wisconsin. That document inadvertently included latitude and longitude coordinates for the restricted area boundary that resulted in encroachment into a Federal navigation project. This document corrects the final rule by revising the latitude and longitude coordinates listed in § 334.815 (a) to reduce the restricted area so that it does not encroach on the Federal navigation project. The document also listed the Department of the Navy organization responsible for administration and enforcement of the restricted area as the Supervisor of Shipbuilding, Conversion, and Repair Gulf Coast (SUPSHIP Gulf Coast). After the document was published, the Department of the Navy revised the mission, functions, and tasks of the Supervisors of Shipbuilding, Conversion and Repair organization. This organizational revision changed the administrative and enforcement responsibilities for the subject restricted area from SUPSHIP Gulf Coast to SUPSHIP Bath, Maine. This document corrects the final rule by revising § 334.815 (b) and (c) to reflect the organizational change.

DATES:

Effective date: April 4, 2012.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers published a final rule in the Federal Register on May 24, 2011 (76 FR 30024), and later determined that correcting amendments need to be made to address encroachment into a Federal navigation channel and a change in the enforcing authority that occurred as a result of the Department of the Navy revising the mission, functions, and tasks of the Supervisors of Shipbuilding, Conversion and Repair (SUPSHIPs) organization. That organizational revision changed administrative and enforcement responsibilities for the subject restricted area from SUPSHIP Gulf Coast to SUPSHIP Bath, Maine. This correcting amendment changes the latitude and longitude coordinates in § 334.815(a) so that the restricted area will not encroach into the Federal navigation project. This correcting amendment also changes the administrative and enforcement responsibilities in § 334.815(b) and (c) for the subject restricted area from SUPSHIP Gulf Coast to SUPSHIP Bath, Maine.
