Channel Maintenance Dredging UMR Mile 0-300

Notice Number: 201041-5/22-04D
Date: 07/07/2022 07:00 thru UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

The Dredge Potter has recently completed work at mile 69 and 75 UMR and is currently working at mile 145 UMR, estimated to complete on Friday, 2 December 2022. The next assignment will be below the Jefferson Barracks Bridge in the vicinity of mile 168 UMR. Updates to the Dredge Potter's schedule will be provided as work progresses.

The Dredge Potter and its attendant plant, to include tender boats, small boats, barges and pipeline, etc., work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. When dredging, removed material is pumped through a pontoon pipeline or self-floating pipeline, which may be crossing the channel, and is placed outside of the navigation channel. Mariners should be on the lookout for tender boats, barges, small survey boats, and pipeline when transiting the dredge area.

The Dredge Potter may be contacted on VHF-FM radio channels 13 and 16. Mariners are urged to transit at their slowest safe speed to minimize wake and proceed with caution after passing arrangements have been made with the Dredge Potter.
