Coast Guard conducts waterways analysis study of Tillamook Bay, seeks public comment

GARIBALDI, Wash. — Coast Guard officials are seeking public comment while conducting a waterways analysis and management system (WAMS) review of Tillamook Bay.

The Coast Guard uses WAMS to validate the adequacy of the existing aids to navigation (ATON) system, as well as to get a better understanding of the uses of each waterway and general safety issues. WAMS focuses on the waterway’s present ATON system, marine casualty information, port/harbor resources, changes in marine vessel usage (both recreational and commercial) and future development projects.

There will be a public meeting held at Coast Guard Station Tillamook Bay in Garibaldi, Oregon on Wednesday, May 8, 2019 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. that the public is encouraged to attend to provide comments.
