The Coast Guard is correcting the end date of the comment period to align with the Environmental Protection Agency's notice announcing the comment period for the availability of this draft environmental impact statement (78 FR 40474). Although documents located in the docket for this notice may list the closing date for this comment period as August 18, 2013, the Coast Guard is accepting comments until August 19, 2013.
