Coast Guard seeking public input in Kennebec River waterway study

SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine – The Coast Guard is conducting a waterways analysis review of the Kennebec River in Maine, to determine the effectiveness of aids to navigation in the river.

The following areas are under review for the Kennebec River:

  • Sequin Ledges to the Bath Rail Road Bridge
  • North of the Bath Rail Road Bridge to Augusta

Due to difficulties in keeping aids on station north of the Richmond/Dresden Bridge, the Coast Guard seeks to make all aids to navigation between the Richmond/Dresden Bridge to Augusta seasonal aids.

Mariners and other concerned parties are invited to comment on the aids to navigation within these waterways. Questionnaires can be obtained by calling (207) 741-5442. Any comments or recommended changes to aids to navigation should be received no later than Dec. 15, 2008. Comments can be sent to:

USCG Sector Northern New England
Aids to Navigation Officer
259 High Street
South Portland, Maine 04106
