PORT OPERATION OF THE N.S. SAVANNAH

Port criteria are presented for the N.S. Savannah, establishing basic limitations on its operations in all ports which supersede all previously issued specifications. The criteria are issued to assure due consideration of the health and safety of the public. Prerequisites are listed for both initial port entry and port reentries. Port acceptability limitations are outlined with regard to accident assumptions, mooring location considerations, remote anchorage, limitations on transit routes, port emergency plants, and special exception (one-hour zone). In-port administrative and procedural safeguards and port operating plans are also described. The appendix provides data on zone evaluation for environmental safeguards.
