Start Preamble


Coast Guard, DHS.


Direct final rule; confirmation of effective date.


The Coast Guard is confirming the removal of the Decker Island restricted anchorage area in the Sacramento River. The restricted anchorage area was needed in the past to prevent non-government vessels from transiting through or anchoring in the United States Army's tug and barge anchorage zones. The United States Army relinquished control of the Island in 1975. A direct final rule detailing the removal of the restricted anchorage regulation was published in the Federal Register on January 23, 2013. We received no comments in response, therefore, the rule will go into effect as scheduled.


The effective date of the direct final rule published January 23, 2013 (78 FR 4785) is confirmed as April 23, 2013.
