(a) The obstruction lights shall be
white or red lights as prescribed in
Subpart 67.05 of this part and shall be
of sufficient candlepower as to be visible at a distance of at least one nautical mile 90 percent of the nights of

passing freely through the field, obstruction lights may be authorized to
mark the perimeter structures only,

Commander the group of structures
which are equipped with obstruction
lights are so arranged that the particular structures are protected to the

degree required by this part, and are
not a hazard to navigation.
(c) Unless advised to the contrary by
the District Commander, obstruction
lights shall be required on Class ‘‘C’’
structures erected in depths of water
greater than 3 feet at mean low water.
(d) In cases where, although not required, an applicant desires to establish and operate obstruction lights, a

notification shall be given to the District Commander of the approximate

they begin construction. Within this
notice, they must inform him or her of
the lights and sound signals they will
use during construction. When construction has been completed, the
maintainer shall notify the District
Commander to that effect by letter,
stating whether or not the authorized
obstruction lights and/or sound signals
are in operation. Final notification by
letter shall be given when the lights
used for general illumination, to facilitate the construction or operation of
the structure, have been discontinued
and the authorized obstruction lights
placed in operation.
(b) Class ‘‘B’’ structures. Notification
shall be given to the District Commander in the case of structures to be
located in areas where Class ‘‘B’’ requirements must be met, in the same
manner as prescribed in the case of

telegram on the day construction of
the structure is commenced shall not
be required.
(c) Class ‘‘C’’ structures. Notification
shall be given to the District Commander in the case of structures to be
located in areas where Class ‘‘C’’ requirements must be met, upon completion of the structure.
