The Houston/Galveston Navigation Safety Advisory Committee (HOGANSAC) has compiled the first-ever Facility Information Guide for the ports of Galveston, Houston and Texas City. The Guide provides specific navigation information for every facility in the three-port area.
Information in the Guide was contributed by terminal owners and operators and organized by staff members at Coast Guard Vessel Traffic Service Houston/Galveston. Copies of the Guide are currently available and may be purchased from the Marine Exchange of the West Gulf, Inc.
The guide's cost is $16.24 per copy, plus shipping and handling.
The Guide is intended to enhance the safety of marine operations in the region by providing important data on channel-side facilities. In addition to a general facility diagram, the Guide includes information on minimum depth, dock length, slip width and mooring arrangements at each facility in the Galveston, Houston and Texas City area.
