Ashepoo Coosaw Cutoff

Posted by admin | Posted on 05-23-2009

Ashepoo Coosaw Cutoff Into Coosaw River
(Statute Mile 517, South Carolina ICW)

The Problemthis stretch of the Waterway was last dredged in November – December, 2008. As of August, 2013 severe shoaling lies along this canal’s southwestern mouth, markers #180 and #185. Some dead low water depths of 4 feet will be encountered between these two aids to navigation.
And, for the firs time, as of August, 2013, severe shoaling has also been reported hard by the Ashpoo – Coosaw Cutoff’s northeastern mouth, near marker #177!

The SolutionTime your passage through this section for mid to high tide.
As you cruise through the northeastern entrance to the Ashepoo – Coosaw Cutoff, do NOT approach marker #177 closely. Favor the northern side of the channel somewhat as you pass #177.
When navigating the Cutoff’s southwesterly mouth, try slightly favoring the northwestern side of the channel between markers #184 and #185.
