Lake Mead National Recreation Area News Release

June 7, 2002 - For Immediate Release

Lake Mead National Recreation Area Supertintendent Bill Dickinson announced changes in aids to navigation on Lake Mead.

The following red lighted buoy has been established to assist mariners in making safe passage through the Overton Islands near Echo Bay. The Bighorn Island East red lighted buoy number 12 is located at  36 degrees, 17 minutes, 24 seconds north & 114 degrees, 23 minutes, 17 seconds west.

This aid shows a red light and displays an "FL" (flashing) sequence. The light is on for 0.4 seconds, then off for 3.6 seconds after which the sequence is repeated.

The following series of unlighted lateral buoys have been established to assist the mariner in making safe passage from the Overton Arm into Echo Bay. The eight buoys have been positioned to delineate the boundries of the safe channel into Echo Bay Harbor. The buoy locations are:

Green Can Buoy EB-1: 36 degrees, 17 minutes, 40 seconds north; 114 degrees, 24 minutes, 03 seconds west

Red Can Buoy EB-2: 36 degrees, 17 minutes, 45 seconds north; 114 degrees, 24 minutes, 02 seconds west

Green Can Buoy EB-3: 36 degrees, 17 minutes, 46 seconds north; 114 degrees, 24 minutes, 15 seconds west

Red Can Buoy EB-4: 36 degrees, 17 minutes, 53 seconds north; 114 degrees, 24 minutes, 13 seconds west

Green Can Buoy EB-5: 36 degrees, 18 minutes, 00 seconds north; 114 degrees, 24 minutes, 34 seconds west

Red Can Buoy EB-6: 36 degrees, 18 minutes, 04 seconds north; 114 degrees, 24 minutes, 31 seconds west

Green Can Buoy EB-7: 36 degrees, 18 minutes, 07 seconds north; 114 degrees, 24 minutes, 47 seconds west

Red Can Buoy EB-8: 36 degrees, 18 minutes, 10 seconds north; 114 degrees, 24 minutes, 42 seconds west

 

These aids will remain in service while the water levels at Lake Mead National Recreation Area remain lower than normal.  As water levels rise, the need for the buoys will be re-evaluated.
