Mariners are to be aware that the State Aids to Navigation (ATON) are being removed as necessary through the duration of the dredging.  The public is advised to be stay alert and beware of buoys, pipeline and other dredging equipment, do not approach the pipeline dredge or any of the project  equipment under any circumstances.  Pipelines can be difficult to see and boaters should maintain "No Wake Zone" speeds in the work zones.


The precise timing and duration of the work is depended on the weather and water conditions and is subject to change.
