Notice to Mariners

Notice to users of Lake Pieman/Reece Dam

Hydrowood underwater logging operations have started in Lake Pieman/Reece Dam.

Current operational areas can be found here and will be updated on this website on a monthly basis.

An exclusion zone will be clearly defined around the operation with signage and yellow buoys deployed at the edge of the active harvesting area.

Recreational boat users can pass through the area after making contact with the barge operator through marine radio or by hand signals. Instructions stating the marine channel to use and other restrictions will be posted on signs.

If the harvest barge is not operating then proceed through the area with caution.

Around the operation there may be some debris in the water around the barge, so caution needs to be exercised by the skipper.

SFM recommend a maximum speed of 5 knots through the operational area.

If the equipment is not attended we ask that you do not climb onto the barge for safety and security reasons.
