Harbor Safety Plan

Lower Columbia Region Harbor Safety Plan

The Harbor Safety Plan of the Lower Columbia Region Harbor Safety Committee is an informational and educational tool. The Plan complements the existing regulations and advises mariners of the unique conditions and requirements that may be encountered in the Lower Columbia Region. Local experts from industry, regulatory agencies, and the public developed these standards to provide guidelines for mariners operating in the Columbia River.

The Harbor Safety Plan is reviewed by the LCRHSC on a regular basis. The review process for the 2018/2019 edition of the Harbor Safety Plan is currently underway and an updated version is expected in the 2nd quarter of 2019.
