SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On June 21, 2012 (77 FR 37305), the Coast Guard published a final 
rule entitled ``Navigation and Navigable Waters; Technical, 
Organizational, and Conforming Amendments.'' Subsequent to the 
publication of that notice, the Coast Guard discovered that the changes 
discussed in the Preamble to 33 CFR 84.15 and 33 CFR 115.60 were not 
included in the regulatory text.

Need for Correction

    As published, the final regulations do not capture two changes to 
Title 33 of the CFR and need to be corrected. In Sec.  84.15, there is 
a formula for intensity of lights. This formula contains a legend 
describing the variables which includes an equals sign without a hard 
return for the definition. This formula instead should include a colon 
after each letter representation and a hard return following each 
colon. In Sec.  115.60, the word ``construction'' is in the heading. 
The word ``construction'' should be removed because this section 
focuses on applications for permits to construct, modify, or replace 
bridges. Therefore, the word ``construction'' in the title does not 
accurately indicate the breadth of the regulation so the word needs to 
be removed.

List of Subjects

33 CFR Part 84

    Navigation (water), Waterways.

33 CFR Part 115

    Administrative practice and procedure, Bridges, Reporting and 
recordkeeping requirements.

    Accordingly, 33 CFR part 84 and part 115 are corrected by making 
the following correcting amendments:

PART 84--ANNEX I: POSITIONING AND TECHNICAL DETAILS OF LIGHTS AND 
SHAPES

1. The authority citation for part 84 continues to read as follows:

2. Revise Sec.  84.15(a) to read as follows:


Sec.  84.15  Intensity of lights.

    (a) The minimum luminous intensity of lights will be calculated by 
using the formula:

I=3.43x10\6\ xTxD\2\ xK-D

    Where
I: Luminous intensity in candelas under service conditions,
T: Threshold factor 2x10-7 lux,
D: Range of visibility (luminous range) of the light in nautical 
miles,
K: Atmospheric transmissivity. For prescribed lights the value of K 
will be 0.8, corresponding to a meteorological visibility of 
approximately 13 nautical miles.
