d13SEATTLE — Coast Guard officials are seeking public comment while conducting a waterways analysis and management system review of Bellingham.

Officials are seeking information from local mariners regarding the general use of the waterways and any issues with the visibility, placement or location of aids to navigation in that area before the comment deadline of Nov. 30, 2015.

The WAMS includes Bellingham Bay, Bellingham Channel, Semiahmoo Bay, Boundary Bay, and Hale Passage.  The study focuses on the area’s aids to navigation system, waterborne commerce, marine casualty information, port/harbor resources, emergency response plans, routine and emergency communication capabilities and future development projects.
