A safety zone will be in place in all navigable waters within 250 yards of the diving vessels, as well as any associated equipment operating in Marcus Hook Anchorage.

***Beginning at 5:00 am on Monday, May 14, 2018 through sunset on Friday, May 18, 2018, diving and pipeline removal operations will be conducted on the green side of the channel at approximately 39° 48.162” N, 075° 25.391” W.

Any vessel requesting to enter or transit the safety zone during these hours must contact the crane barge KELLY or towing vessel JOKER via VHF-FM Channel 13 or 16 to make satisfactory passing arrangements. Vessels may also contact Sector Delaware Bay’s command center via VHF-FM channel 16 to request permission to enter.

Vessels must operate at the minimum safe speed necessary to maintain steerage and reduce wake when transiting in the anchorage and main navigational channel in the vicinity of the safety zone.
