Coast Guard Amends Anchorage Regulations for Lower Miss. River

Monday, October 30, 2006
The Coast Guard is amending anchorage regulations for the Lower Mississippi River, prohibiting vessels anchored in the Lower Kenner Bend Anchorage from using or exercising the ship’s hold cargo cranes. Vessels in this anchorage must keep the ship’s hold cargo gear in the down and hawsed position, as rigged for sea transits. Deck-mounted cranes, deck booms, and stiff legs may be used to take on ship’s stores and spare parts and may be used to move manifold hoses. The purpose of these amendments, which come into effect on November 29, is to reduce the risk to aircraft passengers and crew, mariners, and the public from potential safety hazards associated with the ascent and descent of aircraft over vessels anchored in the vicinity of the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport. 71 Fed. Reg. 63245 Source: HK Law
