MAC hosts USCG D5 PARS(Port Access Route Study) Roundtable:
MAC membership is invited to attend a virtual roundtable event on Tuesday, March 9th at 10:00 EST. Participants will include USCG, BOEM, Offshore Wind Developers, and navigation stakeholders.

All MAC navigation stakeholders who have an interest in our port approaches are encouraged to attend this meeting whose purpose is to:
1. To identify impacts to navigational safety, Coast Guard missions, and traditional uses of the water based on known conflicts between potential offshore developments, offshore anchoring practices, and safe access routes to the entrance of Delaware Bay.
2. To identify the routing measure alternatives, maximize navigational safety; preserve Coast Guard mission space, and strike a balance between traditional and new uses of the waterway and which alternatives the Coast Guard Navigation Center should further evaluate as part of the PARS process

USCG NAVCEN has undertaken traffic analysis in anticipation of the PARS and data files for the NJ PARS traffic analysis have been posted on Sector Delaware Bay`s Homeport account.

The meeting can be joined via Zoom at:
