Interested parties are hereby notified that in response to a request by the United States Marine Corps and pursuant to the Corps of Engineers (Corps) authorities in Section 7 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1917 (40 Stat 266; 33 U.S.C. 1) and Chapter XIX of the Army Appropriations Act of 1919 (40 Stat 892; 33 U.S.C. 3), the Corps is amending its danger zone regulations to establish a permanent danger zone in the Pacific Ocean adjacent to the Mason Live-Fire Training Range Complex (LFTRC) on Guam.
The danger zone will be added at 33 CFR 334.1425 and becomes effective on November 7, 2021. The danger zone is located entirely within the Pacific Ocean, comprising 3,660 acres and extending 2.8 miles into the ocean from the mean high water line. Establishment of the danger zone will intermittently prohibit vessels from entering the danger zone when the Mason LFTRC is in active use in order to ensure public safety.
