  • Nav Alert comment on SC: High Water Alert, Upper Waccamaw River

    Comment by: Ted Stehle on Jun 5, 2020

    The coast Guard has issued the following MSIB:

    The Captain of the Port Charleston (COTP) has established a temporary safety zone on all waters of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway (AICW) from mile marker 375 near Enterprise Landing to mile marker 366 near Fantasy Island Bridge. Entry of vessels or persons into this zone is prohibited unless vessels proceed at speeds that do not create a wake. State and Federal authorities have determined that wakes from vessels transitting the area create increased hazards associated with high waters present in the area.

    This rule is effective from June 4, 2020, through June 30, 2020, or until waters recede and conditions allow for safe navigation, whichever occurs first. The duration of the safety zone is intended to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment while this area experiences high water conditions.

    This MSIB can be viewed at https://homeport.uscg.mil/port-directory/charleston. For questions or concerns regarding this MSIB, please contact Sector Charleston Waterways Management Division at (843) 323-7761 or the Sector's 24-hour Command Center at (843) 740-7050.

    This has got to be one of the nicer Marinas in the area. The staff is very friendly and the marina is so clean. Lots of showers and washer/dryers.

    Waterway Guide reviewed several editions of the 5th District Notice to Mariners and found no reference to this nav aid being extinguished.

    Waterway Guide called the bridge 11/25 at 3:00. We were told that the bridge has experienced mechanical failure and will not be able to open until at least Monday morning. Vessels able to pass under the bridge may do so.
