Winter 2018-19 Buoys Update

Submitted by admin on 12/13/2018

In order to keep hulls and sensors safe from potential ice damage, several CBIBS buoys have been removed from the water for the winter months; it is anticipated that these buoys will be redeployed in early spring 2019. During the week of December 10, the Gooses Reef and Annapolis buoys were pulled.

NOAA plans on leaving the Point Lookout, Stingray Point, York Spit, and First Landing CBIBS buoys in the water and operational over the winter. If severe conditions arise, however, one or more of these buoys may need to be pulled, or sensors removed, as well.
