The U.S. Coast Guard has just announced that they are establishing three safety zones to facilitate the Philadelphia to Sea Dredging Maintenance Project which will be conducting dredging in the Delaware River from June 17 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.

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

Safety zone two includes 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 is conducting dredging operations in New Castle Range.

The Coast Guard’s release said that the safety zone three includes all the waters of Marcus Hook Anchorage No. 7. Safety zone three will be in place only during the time the dredger is conducting dredging operations in Marcus Hook Range.

Pipe laying operations will begin June 17, 2017 and dredging will begin on June 20, 2017.
