Coast Guard scheduled to re-establish aids to navigation in inlet near Holden Beach, NC

 

WILMINGTON, N.C. — The Coast Guard plans to replace the aids to navigation in the Lockwoods Folly Inlet near Holden Beach after the Army Corps of Engineers complete dredging of the inlet, which is scheduled for mid-to-late June.

The Coast Guard temporarily removed the aids from the inlet in October 2011 in the interest of public safety, due to severe shoaling. Depths of less than three feet exist in many areas of the inlet, which is shallower than the charted depths.

"Ensuring waterways are properly marked to facilitate safe and effective navigation is one of the Coast Guard's primary missions, but we cannot put buoys out there when the water depth is insufficient," said Capt. Anthony Popiel, the commander of Coast Guard Sector North Carolina here. "We look forward to having a safe channel for the local mariners to utilize in the coming weeks."

Sector North Carolina watchstanders have issued a broadcast notice to mariners reminding the public that the aids have been removed from the inlet and are urging mariners to avoid transiting the waterway by using alternate channels.

For more information, contact the Sector North Carolina Command Center at 910-343-3882.
