NY: Long Island, Moriches Bay, shoaling - UPDATE

Date Posted: Jun 22, 2017

6/22/17: NY-SHINNECOCK BAY TO EAST ROCKAWAY INLET (Chart 12352)-MORICHES BAY
Severe shoaling conditions continue to impact navigation at the entrance to Moriches Inlet and Moriches Bay. It is considered unsafe for mariners to attempt to navigate Moriches Inlet at any time, and buoys are no longer maintained in the inlet. Severe shoaling is also present in Moriches Bay along the Long Island Intracoastal Waterway in the vicinity of Moriches Bay Buoys 17, 18, 21, 26, 27, 28 and 29 extending the entire width of the channel at nearly all tide levels. The area from Buoy 17 to 21 is navigable only at high tide. The most severe area of shoaling can be found between buoys 26 and 27 and is less than 3 ft. Shoaling is also reported in the vicinity of Moriches Inlet East Cut Buoys 3E and 5E.
Mariners should be aware that the Aids to Navigation in these areas are unreliable due to shoaling and mariners are strongly advised to seek alternate routes.
Because of the severe conditions in Moriches Bay the U.S. Coast Guard is considering making the following change to Aids to Navigation:
DISCONTINUE the following aids:
Moriches Bay Buoy 17 (LLNR 30300)
Moriches Bay Buoy 17A (LLNR 30303)
Moriches Bay Lighted Buoy 18 (LLNR 30305)
Moriches Bay Buoy 20 (LLNR 30320)
Moriches Bay Buoy 21 (LLNR 30315)
ESTABLISH the following aids, each aid will be white and orange with an orange diamond and marked "DANGER SEVERE SHOALING AHEAD" and located to the east and west of the most severe shoaling in the vicinity of buoys 17 to 21;
Moriches Bay West Warning Buoy in approximate position 40-46-37N 072-46-22W
Moriches Bay East Warning Buoy in approximate position 40-46-37N 072-46-22W
Interested Mariners are strongly encouraged to comment on this proposal in writing, either personally or through their organization. All comments will be carefully considered and are requested prior to 18 August 2017 to complete the process. In order to most effectively consider your feedback and improve the data collection, when responding to this proposal, please include size and type of vessel, recreational or commercial, and distance from aid that you start looking for it, and if and how you use the signal. Please do not call the Coast Guard via
telephone or other means, only written responses to this proposal will be accepted. Refer to Project No. 01-17-054. E-mail can be sent to:
D01-SMB-DPWPublicComments@uscg.mil .

9/29/16: Shoaling has been reported in Moriches Bay along the Long Island Intercostal Waterway in the vicinity of Moriches Bay Buoy 17,18, 21, 26, 27, 28 and 29 extending the entire width of the channel and at any tide level. The most severe area of shoaling can be found between buoys 26 and 27 and is less than 3 ft. Shoaling is also reported in Moriches Inlet in the vicinity of Moriches Inlet East Cut Buoys 3E and 5E. Mariners should be aware that the Aids to Navigation in these areas have been deemed unreliable due to shoaling and mariners are advised to seek alternate routes. If transiting these areas, do so only at high tide and
proceed slowly and with extreme caution.
