SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Coast Guard will enforce the regulations in 33 CFR 165.1123, Table 1, item number 7, for a safety zone for the Sea World Fireworks on the waters of Mission Bay, CA from 8:30 p.m. through 9 p.m. on specific evenings from Memorial Day to Labor Day in 2020. This action is being taken to provide for the safety of life on navigable waterways during the fireworks events. Our regulation for Southern California annual fireworks events for the San Diego Captain of the Port Zone, Table 1 to § 165.1123, item number 7, specifies the location of the regulated area for the Sea World Fireworks Events. During the enforcement periods, as reflected in § 165.1123(b), a vessel may not enter the regulated area, unless it receives permission from the Captain of the Port, or his designated representative. Spectator vessels may safely transit outside the regulated area but may not anchor, block, loiter, or impede the transit of participants or official patrol vessels. The Coast Guard may be assisted by other Federal, State, or Local law enforcement agencies in enforcing this regulation.

In addition to this notice of enforcement in the Federal Register, the Start Printed Page 39833Coast Guard plans to provide notification of this enforcement period via the Local Notice to Mariners and local advertising by the event sponsor.

If the Captain of the Port or his designated representative determines that the regulated area need not be enforced for the full duration stated on this document, he or she may use a Broadcast Notice to Mariners or other communications coordinated with the event sponsor to grant general permission to enter the regulated area.
