New USCG Regulations
 
1 Attachment(s)
I remember you guys discussing the new law regarding the security zone at LNG.

Figured I would share what a friend from LNG sent me....

"Some of you may have noticed a newspaper article published over the holidays that outlined new USCG Security Zones at PPG, Sempra and at our location. The new zones actually went into effect in May of this year but the Coast Guard has not been heavy on enforcing as of yet. I suspect that will begin to change with the new year now that their campaign on public awareness has started. For your information if you fish or if you are asked by others, attached is a representation of the new zone as outlined in red. It’s a significant area. This is a “No Entry Zone” unless approved by the Coast Guard and unlike our old 50’ “Safety Zone”, this one will not change based on whether or not a ship is moored. We will be posting new warning signs on our shoreline this week to inform boat traffic. The Coast Guard has the responsibility for monitoring and enforcing the new zone. As we have done in the past, the Terminal will continue to verbally warn boaters that encroach within the first 50’ nearest the shoreline and contact the USCG should the boater not respond."

I think the USCG will have a very busy day patrolling and enforcing this safety zone!

Signs are going to have to be as big as a Billboard to read them that far away.:rolleyes: Coasties will get their rocks off running back and forth issueing tickets.

Maybe you can get out of the boat and walk down the bank to get closer to that corner????

I see people do it at the Wiers.

There is a big area of the PPG loop that is on that list also.
I am waiting on the photos. I will post them as soon as I get them.

Will there be buoys or something marking these areas so boaters know what areas are off limits

No buoys. They will interfere with the ships movement.
If you are in a safety zone, they will escort you out.
If you are in a security zone, they will fine you and throw you in jail.
No getting this fixed. It is Homeland Security. Local connections will
not help you get out of these.

What designates a safety zone Ray

Ray 01-06-2011 11:53 AM

Sunk vessel. Dangerous waters. They usually mark them with something to keep you off/away from the safety issue.
Safety zones are not always permanent, but sometimes they are. They are normally sent out from the USCG as a
Notice To Mariners by VHF and by email or website.

Security Zones are permanent. They mean business. You will see more 18 year old USCG with 50 Cal. guns running
around now.

Security Zones are designated zones or areas that are off limits, with no exceptions, to protect vital US infrastructure.
We can thank the freakin ragheads for this.

Wag 01-06-2011 11:56 AM

Thanks guys for the info....and my VHF just went dead on me, going to replace it anyway, will make note on GPS on restricted areas.

Wag 01-06-2011 11:57 AM

This tread needs to become a sticky at top where everyone can see it

Gerald 01-06-2011 12:39 PM

The Newspaper article said something about "Signs" being put up this spring or summer, to mark the areas.
