Timaru, New Zealand
Some arriving vessels may now have tidal windows imposed for berthing. A survey of the outer channel after the recent weather event have revealed that we lost 60cm of water. Outer channel in Timaru is now 10.0m. The current channel depth means that any vessel with a draft of more than 8.9m could be restricted by the tide. Now there are works on mobilizing a dredge for an emergency dredging campaign to ensure we reinstate the channel depth as quickly as possible.
