Safety Zone Within the Lower Portion of Anchorage #9, Mantua Creek Anchorage; Paulsboro, NJ
The Coast Guard will be establishing a temporary safety zone around the southern one-third of Anchorage 9 (Mantua Creek Anchorage) due to dredging operations. The Dredge Florida will be working along with several support barges and tugs to install approximately 8,000 feet of submerged pipeline and approximately 3,000 feet of floating pipeline crossing through this portion of the anchorage. This regulation is necessary to provide for the safety of life on the navigable waters of the Mantua Creek Anchorage. This closure is intended to restrict vessel anchoring to protect mariners from the hazards associated with an ongoing dredging operation.
