Will there be enough room for the barge as it comes upriver (to San Pablo Bay)? Will the dock located near the Foundry Wharf operated by North Bay Rowing Club be at risk of being damaged during this operation?

The proposed contractor employs seasoned tug boat captains who navigate along the Petaluma River on a regular basis. The contractor is relying on this experience, as well as recent analysis, to ensure the operation is safe. Surveys done by the proposed contractor within 60 days of the start of this project estimate a “cushion” of 2 ft of tire width on port and starboard sides between the largest barge (the Sonnee Delight) and the Foundry Wharf docks.
