#8 – Correction to Seaway Notice No. 2 – 2004 Allowable Draft

March 22, 2004

In the Welland Canal, please note that, for vessels loaded to a draft greater than 80.0 dm, speeds will be monitored carefully between the upper entrance to Lock 7 and former Bridge 12 in order to reduce bank erosion in this area. In addition, there will be zero tolerance for vessel drafts in excess of 80.8 dm (26′ 6”).
