All Set for Marcus Hook Range Dredging Work

The U.S. Coast Guard said in its latest release that they are establishing three safety zones to facilitate the Philadelphia to Sea Dredging Maintenance Project which includes the dredging works in the Delaware River from May 12 through September 1, 2017.

During this time, the cutter suction dredger Illinois will begin dredging in Marcus Hook Range, followed by Deepwater Point Range, and finish dredging in New Castle Range.

Safety zone one includes all the waters within a 150 yard radius of the dredger and all related dredge equipment, the Coast Guard said.

Safety zone two involves all the waters of Pea Patch Island Anchorage No. 5, where submerged pipeline will be located causing a hazard to anchoring vessels. Safety zone two will be in place
only during the time the dredger Illinois is conducting dredging operations in New Castle Range.

The third safety zone includes all the waters of Marcus Hook Anchorage and will be in place only during the time the dredger is conducting dredging operations in Marcus Hook Range.

Pipe laying operations are set to begin on My 12 and dredging will start on May 15, 2017, according to the Coast Guard’s release.
