NOAA Begins 2013 Post-Sandy Hydrographic Surveys at Statue of Liberty

NOAA kicked off its spring season with post-Hurricane Sandy hydrographic work on April 11. A NOAA navigation response team—equipped with high-tech surveying equipment—began a survey in the waters surrounding Liberty Island and Ellis Island.

At the request of the National Park Service, Coast Survey’s Navigation Response Team 5 (NRT5), one of the first in-water responders to help re-open the Port of New York and New Jersey immediately after Hurricane Sandy, is working to re-establish safe navigation and docking at the Statue of Liberty, in preparation for its planned re-opening on July 4.
