This measure is needed to protect persons and vessels from the potential safety hazards associated with Week’s Marine dredge and pipeline operations and will be in effect with the following provisions:

Beginning April 24, 2022 and continuing until further notice:<span-size:12.0pt;line-height:150%;font-family:"Times New Roman",serif;color:#202020">
• All vessels transiting from MM 63 to MM 66 shall contact the on-scene dredge, M/V J.S. CHATRY on VHF channel 16, 67 or (985) 237-5041 to coordinate passing and/or anchoring arrangements.
• Mariners are urged to use extreme caution and transit the area at their slowest safe speed.
• Vessels seeking to anchor in Alliance Anchorage shall coordinate with the CG Designated Representative. The Designated Representative is the Master of the on-scene dredge, M/V J.S. CHATRY.
• Vessels anchoring in Alliance Anchorage shall provide a minimum one-half mile separation between their anchored position and the on-scene dredge unless a deviation is authorized by the Designated Representative.
• Vessels anchored in Alliance Anchorage who come to interfere with the dredging operations will be required to move.

As a guide the pilots require at least an additional 3 feet of clearance for the Vessel's Air Draft.  The individual pilot assigned to the vessel will make the final determination of the vessel's allowable clearance.  Actual clearance should be verified when ordering pilot services.  <span-size:12.0pt;line-height:150%;font-family:"Helvetica",sans-serif;color:#202020">
