The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone closing Pea Patch Island Anchorage No. 5 and the upper portion of Reedy Point South Anchorage No. 3 to anchoring operations in order to facilitate dredging in New Castle Range in the Delaware River.
This regulation is necessary to provide for the safety of life on the navigable waters of Pea Patch Island and Reedy Point South Anchorages.
These closures are intended to restrict vessel anchoring to protect mariners from the hazards associated with ongoing pipe-laying and dredging operations.
