[California] Coast Guard Urges Boater Caution in San Francisco Delta Due to Debris, Currents

SAN FRANCISCO — The Coast Guard urges mariners in the San Francisco Delta Region to exercise caution as river levels are expected to rise this week.

The National Weather Service forecasts rain through the week causing river levels to rise and creating higher tides and more rapid currents than usual.

Boaters should watch for debris in the water as swift currents can quickly turn adrift vessels and gear into hazards.

"It is very important that mariners remain cognizant of the hazards in their areas," said Lt. Marcia Medina, acting chief of Coast Guard Sector San Francisco Waterways Management Division. "Mariners should stay informed and aware of weather conditions and monitor the progress and strength of currents through their local television, radio and internet."

Owners of boats and small crafts, including canoes, kayaks and paddleboards, are encouraged to secure their vessels properly and ensure they are marked with contact information in the event they break free.

Boaters who observe marine debris, please contact the Coast Guard on VHF-FM channel 16 or at 415-399-3520.
