LOCAL NOTICE TO MARINERS
New Jersey - Delaware River - Fairless Turning Basin
The Dredge CHARLESTON will commence dredging operations at the Fairless Turning Basin on or about October 18, 2011. A pipeline will be placed from the dredging area along the north bank shallows to the Money Island Disposal Area. The project will continue until approximately November 10, 2011.
The Dredge Operator will standby on channels #13 and #16 VHF-FM. Traffic should call 30 minutes prior to expected time of passage.
All mariners are requested to stay clear of the dredge, booster, floating (pontoon) and submerged pipelines, barges, derricks and operating wires about the dredge. Operators of vessels of all types should be aware that the dredge and floating pipelines are held in place by cables, attached to anchors some distance away from the equipment. Buoys are attached to the anchors so that the anchors may be moved as the dredge advances and the location of the submerged pipelines are marked by buoys on each side of the channel. Mariners are cautioned to strictly comply with the Inland Rules of the Road when approaching, passing and leaving the area of operations, and remain a safe distance away from the dredge, booster, buoys, cables, pipelines, barges, derricks, wires and related equipment.
Owners and lessees of fishnets, crabpots and other structures that may be in the vicinity and that may hinder the free navigation of attending vessels and equipment must remove these from the area where tugs, tenderboats and other attendant equipment will be navigating. Since the project will be conducted twenty –four (24) hours per day seven (7) days a week, all fishnets, crabpots and structures in the general area must be removed prior to the commencement of the work.
