Start Preamble


U. S. Army Corps of Engineers, DoD.


Correcting amendments.


The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers published a document in the Federal Register on April 10, 1997 (62 FR 17550) amending its regulations to modify an existing danger zone in the waters of Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts. That document inadvertently did not include the proposed rule text that would prohibit entry into a portion of the danger zone. This document corrects the final rule by incorporating the intended prohibition of entry by persons or vessels into the designated area of the danger zone into § 334.70(a)(2).


Effective date: August 18, 2014.
