21 CAUTION WHEN ANCHORING IN THE PROXIMITY OF UNDERWATER EXPLOITATION FACILITIES IN LAKE ERIE


Before anchoring in the Canadian waters of Lake Erie mariners are cautioned to note the underwater positions of existing exploitation facilities.

Mariners are cautioned that damage to these exploitation facilities can be extremely hazardous because pressurized natural gas is both toxic and flammable. Ships may also be liable for any damage that they may cause to these facilities which supply a very large area of southern Ontario.

The following coordinates designate an area in Long Point Bay that is recommended as a suitable anchorage.
