As Jim Borrow‘s photo from today’s port-crane move reminds us, Puget Sound can be a busy place. If you’re among those who navigate its waters, the U.S. Coast Guard has a survey for you. Here’s the announcement they asked us to share:
The Coast Guard is seeking public comment in regard to its ongoing Waterways Analysis and Management System (WAMS) review of Puget Sound from Possession Sound to Dalco Passage. [map]
The Coast Guard uses WAMS to validate the adequacy of existing aids to navigation (ATON) system, as well as to get a better understanding of the uses of each waterway and general safety issues.
WAMS focuses on the waterway’s current ATON system, marine casualty information, port and harbor resources, changes in recreational and commercial marine vessel usage and future development projects.
The comment deadline is Nov. 20. For more information contact Lt. j.g Katie Matha at 206-220-7283 or Katie.E.Matha@uscg.mil.
To participate in the survey, go here and choose the Puget Sound North survey.
