The Coast Guard will enforce the special local regulations for the Fourth of July Fireworks Displays in 33 CFR 100.701 Table 1 from 8 p.m. through 11 p.m. on July 4, 2013. Specifically, this document serves as the notice of enforcement for the “Patriots Point Fireworks” in Mount Pleasant, the “Skull Creek Fireworks” in Hilton Head, and the “City of North Charleston Fireworks” in North Charleston listed in Table 1 to 33 CFR 100.701.

Under the provisions of 33 CFR 100.701, all persons and vessels are prohibited from entering the regulated areas unless permission to enter has been granted by the Captain of the Port Charleston. This notice of enforcement is to provide notice of regulated areas that will encompass portions of the navigable waterways. Spectator vessels may safely transit outside the regulated areas, but may not anchor, block, loiter in, or impede the transit of official patrol vessels. The Coast Guard may be assisted by other Federal, State, or local law enforcement agencies in enforcing these regulations.

This notice is issued under authority of 33 CFR 100.701 and 5 U.S.C. 552 (a). The Coast Guard will provide notice of the regulated areas by Local Notice to Mariners, Broadcast Notice to Mariners, and on-scene designated representatives. If the COTP Charleston determines that the regulated area need not be enforced for the full duration stated in this notice, he or she may use a Broadcast Notice to Mariners to grant general permission to enter the regulated area.
