The USGS weather monitoring buoy placed at coordinate 1 listed above was destroyed by an ice flow in December 2011.  Part of the buoy complex still remains at the listed coordinates and may be a hazard to navigation.  Stay clear of Coordinate 1 listed above
 
The buoy itself sunk at Coordinate 2 listed above.  Part of the buoy has been recovered but much of the debris is still at the coordinate and may pose a hazard to navigation.  It is very near the anchorage for Fremont Springs.
 
We are working with USGS to have both debris areas removod.
