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.
