The Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway Association (AIWA) has alerted its members that the removal of some aids to navigation (ATONS) along the coast of Georgia and South Carolina may pose concerns for mariners transiting some of the affected inlets. The U.S. Coast Guard has issued a Marine Safety Information Bulletin (MSIB) with the following statement:  "Based on the information collected during a Waterways Analysis and Management System (WAMS) of the Atlantic and Gulf Seacoast System (AGSS), the U.S. Coast Guard is proposing to make the following changes to aids to navigation along the South Carolina and Georgia coasts." (See list of ATONS in the MSIB) Public comments on the proposed removal of the ATONS will be accepted through August 14, 2022. The MSIB contains details and contact information for submitting comments.
