Coast Guard holds meetings on safety zone areas

by Ken Quintanilla

Guam - The U.S. Coast Guard hosted two public meeting today at the Port Authority of Guam on its proposed changes to regulated navigation areas in Apra Harbor. The Coast Guard is considering revising and consolidating existing regulated navigation areas, security zones and safety zones in place at Apra Harbor in order to replace redundant, potentially confusing and outdated navigation regulations.

The Coast Guard is also considering expanding the radius of the existing kilo wharf safety zone into a series of two or three safety zone radius options based upon the volume and type of cargo transferred at the wharf. Comments are being accepted by the coast guard on or before March 11.
