Lake St. Clair Buoy Removal Information
Fellow Members of the Birmingham Power Squadron,
If you are a boater on Lake St. Clair, I want to make you aware that the U.S, Coast Guard is proposing to remove several important aids to navigation to reduce their costs. I ask your support to oppose the removal of these buoys which provide safety and convenience to recreational boaters. Even if you do not boat on Lake St. Clair, you can still support this effort.
There are four buoys proposed for removal. They are:
*"PH1" which marks the turn into St. Clair Metro Park and is off Point Huron.
*"CR" which is the main buoy marking the turn into or exit from the Clinton River Channel.
*The two buoys labeled "A" and "B" marking the area known as the Dumping Grounds", SE of the Grosse Pointe Yacht Club.
I have prepared three draft letters to oppose the planned removal of these aids to navigation. I ask you to support opposition to this plan by printing these letters out, signing them and sending them to Mr Doug Sharp at the Coast Guard in Ohio. (Note: You may modify the letters as you see fit.)
All three letters may be mailed together in one envelope.
