Federal Pilot Draft Reduction

From Federal Pilots of Louisiana President Captain Greg Bush

————-
As a result of the latest ACOE soundings, we the Federal Pilots of Louisiana recommend a deep draft of 41’ freshwater for vessels transiting the LMR from mm 4.5 AHP to mm 21.8 BHP. We further anticipate additional changes based on the current river forecast in conjunction with the the addition or subtraction of available dredges.
