  • AIWA Update On Federal Funding for AICW Dredging

    Our thanks to Brad Pickle and the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway Association for the work they do on behalf of all east coast boaters.

    Dear AIWA Members,

    Greetings from the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway Association (AIWA). On behalf of our AIWA Board of Directors, I want to thank each of you for being a member of the Association. I am writing you today to share information related to federal funding for the maintenance dredging of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway. Please note that this email is a high level review of information that was only made available Tuesday (FY18 Budget) and today (FY17 Work Plan). A more detailed review will be included in the AIWA Summer 2017 newsletter. READ MORE!

    I am outlining two separate appropriations processes over two separate fiscal years–the FY17 Work Plan and the FY18 President’s Budget. The FY17 Work Plan identifies final funding for Corps projects while the FY18 President’s Budget outlines the Administration’s priorities. The FY17 Work Plan is funding for the fiscal year that starts on October 1, 2016 and goes through September 30, 2017 and the President’s Budget is for next year from October 1, 2017 through September 30, 2018. In a simplified explanation, the Work Plan is the combination of the President’s budget and additional funding added by Congress; the President’s budget is only the first step in the process for FY18.

    FY17 Workplan:

    Wednesday Evening, the FY17 Work Plan was released and included the following amounts for the AIWW:

    Virginia- $4.14Million, $110k more than President’s FY17 budget
    North Carolina- $1.833M, $83k more than President’s FY17 budget
    South Carolina- $6.6M, $6.5M more than President’s FY17 budget
    Georgia- $181K, no increase over President’s FY17 budget
    Florida- $2.85M, $2M more than President’s FY17 budget
    Total- $15.604M, $8.693M more than the President’s Budget

    In FY 2016, the final Work Plan included $13.931M so the FY17 amount is the largest that the waterway has received in the typical appropriations process in more than five years, and almost 80% more than the President’s Budget. In addition, the Work Plan funding amounts do not include over $30 million received in FY17 for AIWW Maintenance as part of the 2017 supplemental appropriations bill for hurricane recovery. Every state along the waterway received funding for maintenance dredging for hurricane recovery. Further details on all funding will also be provided in the AIWA Summer 2017 newsletter.

    FY 18: President’s budget:

    On Tuesday, the FY18 President’s Budget was released and included the following amounts for the AIWW:

    Virginia- $5.479 Million
    North Carolina- $2.812M
    South Carolina- $199.5K
    Georgia- $181K
    Florida- $2.224M
    Total- $10,895,500

    In comparison, the President’s Budget included $7.231M in FY16 and $6.911 M in FY17 for the Waterway so the FY18 amount is a substantial increase (over 43% higher than 2017) and a great starting point. However, the amount of AIWW funding in the President’s Budget is less than we received in the final FY17 work plan and we will be working with Congress to increase this amount as we have done in previous years. We are making great progress and are very appreciative of the increased funding amounts. We will continue working to increase funding to address additional unmet needs, and we can always use your assistance in two primary areas. One, if you have the opportunity to speak to Congressional Members or staff, please ask them to support Additional Operations & Maintenance Funding for Inland Waterways and Small, Remote or Subsistence Navigation for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. These are the funds that lead to additional funding above the President’s Budget in the final Work Plans.

    And secondly, the AIWA is a membership organization funded through your financial support and proceeds from our annual meeting. We hope to see many of you at our next conference planned for November 15-16, 2017 at the Blockade Runner in Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina. Please also encourage others to join our efforts as AIWA members at all levels and we specifically want to reach local government, marinas and marine businesses, and corporate entities who work and rely on the waterway to join our efforts. If you have contacts or recommendations we would love to hear from you and you can forward to bpickel@seahavenconsulting.com. Thank you for your assistance in identifying organizations to get them on board!

    Please stay tuned for more information in our summer newsletter related to specific projects that have been completed or are underway in all of the states along the waterway. If you have any questions on the information provided above please let me know.

    Respectfully,

    Brad

  • LNM: 2017 Hurricane Information

    The 2017 hurricane season begins next week and, while most of you know these precautions and procedures well, it does not hurt to review.

    HURRICANE INFORMATION
    The hurricane season extends from June 1st through November 30th. Hurricanes can cause excessive damage to vessels and loss of life. To minimize these dangers, the following precautions should be taken by all mariners before getting underway during the hurricane season:   READ MORE!

    (a) Instruction of crew and passengers in location of emergency equipment and emergency procedures;
    (b) Pre-sailing check of vessel, machinery, and equipment for seaworthiness;
    (c) Installation of strong ground tackle;
    (d) Review of storm center evasion procedures;
    (e) Knowledge of nearest hurricane shelter or port; and
    (f) Constant radio watches on channel 16 VHF-FM and frequent monitoring of weather broadcasts.
    The civilian hurricane warning service for the North Atlantic is provided by the National Hurricane Center, Miami, Florida. The center collates ship, aircraft, radar, and satellite data to produce and issue tropical cyclone warnings and forecasts for the North Atlantic Ocean, including the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico. A Tropical Cyclone Public Advisory (TCP) is issued every six hours, with intermediate bulletins provided as needed. For tropical storms and hurricanes threatening to cross the coast of the U.S., coastal warnings are issued to the public so that precautionary actions, including evacuation, can be initiated to minimize damage and loss of life.
    Four alerts are issued:
    (a) TROPICAL STORM WATCH – An announcement that sustained winds of 34 to 63 knots (39 to 73 mph or 63 to 118 km/hr) are possible within
    the specified area within 48 hours in association with a tropical, subtropical, or post-tropical cyclone.
    (b) TROPICAL STORM WARNING – An announcement that sustained winds of 34 to 63 knots (39 to 73 mph or 63 to 118 km/hr) are expected somewhere within the specified area within 36 hours in association with a tropical, subtropical, or post-tropical cyclone.
    (c) HURRICANE WATCH – An announcement that sustained winds of 64 knots (74 mph or 119 km/hr) or higher are possible within the specified area in association with a tropical, subtropical, or post-tropical cyclone. Because hurricane preparedness activities become difficult once winds reach tropical storm force, the hurricane watch is issued 48 hours in advance of the anticipated onset of tropical storm force winds.
    (d) HURRICANE WARNING – An announcement that sustained winds of 64 knots (74 mph or 119 km/hr) or higher are expected somewhere within the specified area in association with a tropical, subtropical, or post-tropical cyclone. Because hurricane preparedness activities become difficult once winds reach tropical storm force, the warning is issued 36 hours in advance of the anticipated onset of tropical-storm-force winds. The warning can remain in effect when dangerously high water or a combination of dangerously high water and waves continue, even though winds may be less than hurricane force. Additional information of interest to mariners is included in the Tropical Cyclone Forecast/Advisory (TCM) and the Tropical Cyclone Surface Wind Speed Probabilities (PWS) products. The TCM provides current and forecast storm positions, intensities, and wind fields out to 120 hours. The PWS provides probabilities of sustained wind speeds equal to or exceeding 34-, 50-, and 64-kt wind speed thresholds for select coastal and
    offshore locations Mariners are reminded that aids to navigation, particularly lighted and unlighted buoys, may be moved from charted position, damaged, destroyed, extinguished, or otherwise deemed discrepant as a result of hurricanes and storms. Mariners should not rely solely upon the position or operation of an aid to navigation, but also employ such other methods of determining position as may be available. Port Hurricane Conditions are set up by the COTP and will change as the threat of severe weather increases, or as a storm approaches a specific COTP Area of Responsibility. For COTP-specific Port Hurricane Conditions, you should review information provided under the Port Directory tab of http://homeport.uscg.mil
    Condition 4 – Hurricane Seasonal Alert. 01 June–30 November; port status: open.
    Condition Whiskey – Sustained Gale Force winds associated with Tropical Cyclone activity are predicted within 72 hours; port status: open.
    Condition X-Ray – Sustained Gale Force winds associated with Tropical Cyclone activity are predicted within 48 hours; port status: open.
    Condition Yankee – Sustained Gale Force winds associated with Tropical Cyclone activity are predicted within 24 hours; port status: restricted; vessel/facility control measures in effect.
    Condition Zulu – Sustained Gale Force winds associated with Tropical Cyclone activity are predicted within 12 hours; port status: closed to all vessel traffic and waterside activities except for activities approved by the COTP.
    Drawbridges along the coast may deviate from normal operating procedures. Drawbridges are authorized to remain closed upon approach of Gale Force winds of 34 knots or greater. Extended closure periods may be authorized up to 8 hours prior to arrival of Gale Force winds to facilitate evacuation of land traffic. Due to the uncertainty of hurricane movements and bridge closures, mariners are urged to seek passage through drawbridges well in advance of the arrival of Gale Force winds. LNM 21/17
