    FLORIDA – JACKSONVILLE – ST JOHNS RIVER – MAYPORT: Dredge Operations
    Cashman Dredging and Marine Contracting Company, LLC will begin dredging operations on or about February 2, 2017, in Jacksonville Harbor, Duval County, Florida. Dredging operations will be conducted within the Federal Navigation Channel encompassing the St. Johns River from Bar Cut-3 to Bar Cut-9.

The mooring barge will be positioned along the south side of St. Johns River, outside of the Federal channel and secured with spuds and have proper lighting for nighttime operations. Approximately 300 linear feet of floating pipeline will be placed in line with the mooring barge to the shoreline. The floating pipeline will be marked with lighted buoys, for local traffic. The dredge will be supported by the survey vessel “SURVEY 2” and various other support vessels. All vessels will monitor VHF channels 16, 13, 12, and use 74 as the working channel. Mariners are urged to transit at their slowest safe speed to minimize wake and proceed with caution after passing arrangements have been made. The dredge will operate 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.
    The work is scheduled to be completed on or about April 8, 2017. Chart 11491 LNM 04/17 [/expand]

  • Florida USACE Prepares for Matthew

    Our thanks to Communications Specialist Erica Skolte of the Jacksonville USACE for this notice.

    All,
    US Army Corps of Engineers is preparing for impacts from Hurricane Matthew. We have adjusted the operating hours at the locks on the Okeechobee Waterway, and are ensuring users of our recreation facilities are aware they may need to evacuate. More information is attached and copied below.
    Please contact me if you have questions. Thanks for your help.

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
    Corps prepares for Matthew; issues guidance to boaters & campers Read More



    As Hurricane Matthew makes its way through the Caribbean islands, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District is preparing to respond as needed and providing information to boaters and campers on operational adjustments that will take place at navigation locks and recreation facilities.

    The Jacksonville District activated its emergency operations center (EOC) at 7 a.m. today (Oct. 4). This action allows district staff to devote added attention to the response actions that might be necessary should Matthew cause impacts as it passes near Florida.

    “Our staff is coordinating with state and local officials,” said Candida Bronson, Acting Operations Division Chief for Jacksonville District. “We are adjusting our operations to ensure the safety of those who use our facilities and our staff in south Florida.”

    Jacksonville District is issuing the following guidance on its operations in south Florida:
    * For boaters, the Corps has extended operating hours for its navigation locks on the Okeechobee Waterway; they will operate from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday (Oct. 4) and Wednesday (Oct. 5). Operating hours on Thursday will depend on the track of the storm. To ensure safety of lock operators, the Corps will suspend operations when lightning is in the area, or when winds exceed 35 mph.
    * For campers and visitors to recreation sites, Jacksonville District park rangers will monitor conditions at Corps’ campgrounds and recreation areas. If a county government issues an evacuation order for mobile homes or RV parks in an area where there is a Corps’ campground or recreational facility, rangers will order an evacuation of the facility and advise on shelter locations. Visitors should move all campers, motor homes, tents, vessels, and trailers from facilities under evacuation orders.
    * Today, field staff are conducting a pre-storm evaluation of the Herbert Hoover Dike surrounding Lake Okeechobee. The current lake stage is 15.78 feet. While no immediate threat exists, the Corps advises people living and working around the lake to be prepared to take action should conditions warrant.

    More information on Jacksonville District response actions can be found at www.saj.usace.army.mil.

    OKEECHOBEE WATERWAY AND CANAVERAL HARBOR LOCK OPERATIONS DURING TROPICAL STORMS AND HURRICANES

    1. Notice to Navigation
    Notice is given that 72 hours prior to a Tropical Storm or Hurricane making local landfall locks will be open 6 AM to 10 PM supporting vessel safe harbor passage. Lock operations will stop 8 hours prior to land fall as Rail Road and drawbridges will be lowered or rotated and locked into a secure position. It’s important that all vessels are at their intended destination before bridges are secured and passage across the waterway suspended.
    For Lock Operator safety the locks will:
    1. Stop locking vessels or working outdoors if lightning is observed within five miles of the lock and
    operations will not resume until lightning has not been seen in the area for 30 minutes.
    2. Stop locking vessels when winds exceed 35 MPH.
    After a storm it could be days or weeks before the waterway is reopen depending on damage to structures and
    how quickly debris creating navigation hazards can be removed.

  • Intracoastal Waterway Deepening Project Underway, Fort Lauderdale, FL

    This tax supported dredging to accommodate the yachts of the wealthiest of the wealthy clearly shows to whom Florida politicians bow. You will pay for the project, but will it aid you in any way?

    FLORIDA – AICW – WEST PALM BEACH TO MIAMI – FORT LAUDERDALE: Intracoastal Waterway Deepening Project
    The Florida Inland Navigation District (FIND) is sponsoring a project to deepen the AICW channel to -15 ft MLW in a ±2-mile section from 17th Street Causeway to just north of the Las Olas Bridge. Material from the AICW channel will be mechanically dredged by Cashman Dredging, Inc. and placed into a barge. The material will be dewatered and temporarily placed at a Dredged Material Management Area (DMMA) located at Port Everglades. Dredging will begin the first week of May 2016, and is expected to continue for about 50 weeks. The Dredge CAPTAIN A.J. FOURNIER will work daylight hours only. During the project, every reasonable effort will be made to accommodate normal, safe navigation operations. However, mariners should be aware that clearances within the AICW will be reduced and navigability will be limited during dredge operations. Mariners are urged to subscribe to daily email updates at IWWDredgePosition@jaycashman.com for operation reports and potential impacts to navigation, or call Stephen Tobin (877) 294-9990 or (888) 280-9630 for general questions concerning the project.
