Establishment of silt curtain at Rambler Channel

For approximately 3 months, marine works involving establishment of silt curtain at the seawall of the sewage outfall at Rambler Channel will be carried out in the area bounded by straight lines joining the following coordinates (WGS 84 Datum) from (A) to (D) and the adjacent shoreline:
(A) 22 deg. 20.988’N / 114 deg. 06.880’E
(B) 22 deg. 20.987’N / 114 deg. 06.877’E
(C) 22 deg. 20.997’N / 114 deg. 06.873’E
(D) 22 deg. 20.998’N / 114 deg. 06.876’E

The silt curtain will extend vertically from the sea surface to the seabed.

Yellow marker buoys fitted with yellow flashing lights will be laid along the surface of the silt curtain to mark the extent of the silt curtain.

The works will be carried out by a work boat and a shore crane.

The hours of work will be from 0800 to 1800 hours. No works will be carried out on Sundays and public holidays. Vessel employed for the works will not stay in the works area outside the hours of work.

Diving operations will be carried out from the work boat from time to time during the laying and maintenance operations.

Vessel engaged in the operations will display signals as prescribed in international and local regulations.

Vessels navigating in the vicinity should proceed with caution and keep clear of the silt curtain at slow speed, bearing in mind there are divers working around the silt curtain.
