Mariners are advised that with effect from Monday 2nd November 2020, marsh replenishment works will recommence within ‘Boiler Marsh’ bay to the east of the Lymington River entrance. Works are expected to be completed by the 31st March 2021.

The plan below shows the location of the replenishment works (purple shading). Silt dredged from the Lymington River will be transported to the replenishment site by bottom dump hopper barges. The barges will navigate into the receiving area as far as their draft allows on a HWS tide and discharge their load working from North to South.

Prior to works commencing the entrance to the disposal area will be marked by two yellow ‘special mark’ buoys located at the following co-ordinates.

Western Buoy                                                                        Eastern Buoy

Latitude:             050⁰ 44.677 N                                               Latitude:             050⁰ 44.745 N

Longitude:          001⁰ 30.442 W                                              Longitude:          001⁰ 30.197 W

Mariners should not navigate north of a transit (shown as a broken yellow line) taken between the two special marks.

This notice will self cancel on the 1st April 2021
