USCG seeks mariner input on Miami Main Channel waterway assessment


The U.S. Coast Guard is taking mariner input on waterway use in the Miami Main Channel and Government Cut. A Waterway Analysis and Management System (WAMS) survey will gather feedback from recreational and commercial boaters, and others in the industry, on the use of the maritime navigational system through the jetties which lead to the Miami Main Channel.

USCG officials use WAMS surveys to assess existing aids to navigation systems, uses of each waterways and safety issues. The survey focuses on the waterway’s current navigational system, marine casualty information, port and harbor resources, and possible changes in recreational and commercial vessel use and development projects.

The survey is open to the public until Nov. 20 and is online at
