Coast Guard Conducting Shallow-Draft Waterway Survey

The U.S. Coast Guard is conducting an assessment of the Shallow Draft Waterway Systems to determine the navigation requirements for mariners in the U.S. Marine Transportation System (MTS).

This study will help determine the Aids to Navigation (ATON) requirements in the Shallow Draft Waterway Systems, which include all navigable waterways less than 12 feet deep in the United States. This is part of the Coast Guard’s effort to make navigable waterways of the United States safer, more efficient, and more resilient.
