<span-family:"Arial",sans-serif;color:black;mso-fareast-language:EN-US">Maritime Exchange Member Ship Agents

<span-family:"Arial",sans-serif;color:black;mso-fareast-language:EN-US">The Exchange is forwarding the following on behalf of Capt. J. Stuart Griffin, Chairman of the Mariners’ Advisory Committee:

<span-family:"Arial",sans-serif;color:black;mso-fareast-language:EN-US">With up to 28 Delaware River Main Channel closures, the Silver Run Project will affect operations for everyone on the river for as long as two months. Vessel traffic will be delayed both ways, and tide-constrained vessels may be more impacted. Considering the highly technical nature of burying the cables 25 feet below the river bottom and the complexity of the entire operation, planning and preparedness are key to mitigate impacts. The MAC encourages everyone to attend the planning meeting at SECDELBAY on July 29.

<span-family:"Arial",sans-serif;color:black;mso-fareast-language:EN-US">Silver Run Cable Project Special Meeting - July 29 at 0930
All MAC members and port partners are invited to attend a special meeting hosted by USCG Sector Delaware Bay on Monday, July 29 at 0930 to discuss the upcoming Silver Run Cable Project, USCG plans around the project, and the impact of the project on ALL port constituents.

<span-family:"Arial",sans-serif;color:black;mso-fareast-language:EN-US">The meeting will be held at USCG Sector Delaware Bay, 1 Washington Avenue, in the General Greene room.

<span-family:"Arial",sans-serif;color:black;mso-fareast-language:EN-US">The Silver Run Project involves the burial of seven power cables in the river bottom across Baker Range and will include up to 28 interruptions of traffic in the main channel.

<span-family:"Arial",sans-serif;color:black;mso-fareast-language:EN-US">Parties planning to attend should email the SECDELBAY Waterways staff to RSVP at: delawarebaywwm@uscg.mil

<span-family:"Arial",sans-serif;color:black;mso-fareast-language:EN-US">Detailed info about the project is available on the MAC website sidebar "Silver Run Cable Project." Contact chairman@macdelriv.org for more info.
