|Be on the watch for floating debris as you travel the ICW.|
Mile marker "O" AICW would like to warn all passing boaters of floating debris in the Elizabeth River and the Chesapeake Bay. We have recently noticed an increase of visible lumber and trash in the river and basins and just removed a 4" X 4" X 16' board floating in the High Street Landing. Be especially careful if you are mooring at Swimming Point on the north end of Olde Towne Portsmouth- a lot of large wood pieces are washing up on the beach in front of the newly constructed seawall and along the waterfront residences. Heavy rains predicted this weekend and early next week will multiply the debris as it washes into the estuaries and then into the river.
So please be safe while traveling through our neck of the river. We hope you'll take a breather and stop by for a visit with us in Portsmouth, Virginia!
