THE COAST GUARD URGES MARINERS IN THE SAN FRANCISCO DELTA REGION TO
EXERCISE CAUTION AS RIVER LEVELS RISE. EXPECTED RAIN THROUGH THE
WEEK WILL CAUSE RIVER LEVELS TO RISE CREATING HIGHER WATER LEVELS 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. OWNERS OF BOATS AND SMALL CRAFTS 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.
