COAST GUARD SEEKS COMMENTS ON HOW TO IMPROVE OUR NATION’S SHALLOW DRAFT WATERWAYS ATON SYSTEM
The U.S. Coast Guard is conducting a Waterways Analysis and Management System (WAMS) Study on the Shallow Draft System (waters less than 12 feet). The purpose of this study is to determine the navigational needs and requirements of vessels operating in shallow draft navigable waterways throughout the country. The study will focus on the existing shallow water Aids to Navigation (ATON) system, future development projects, waterborne commerce transiting these waters, and marine casualty information. Waterway users, interested parties, and stakeholders are invited to provide comments or feedback via the tool posted at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ShallowWaterWAMS. This link will remain available until November 1, 2020. Further questions or comments may be emailed to CGNAV@uscg.mil using the subject line: “Shallow Draft
