Saginaw River News

Both the Manitowoc and the Olive L. Moore - Lewis J. Kuber remained on the Saginaw River as of Saturday night, with Manitowoc at the Bay City Wirt dock and the Moore-Kuber at the Burroughs dock in Zilwaukee  The Moore-Kuber arrived on the 28th of May with a split cargo for Bay City and Saginaw Wirt and Manitowoc arrived on the 29th and unloaded at Bay City Wirt.  Very strong currents in the Saginaw River are preventing the vessels from safely turning around and heading out for the lake.

Commercial Vessel Passages for the month of May totaled 18.  This is three less than the same period in 2012, but is actually one more than the five year average.  For total vessel passages for the year, there have been 21, which is 14 passages less than the same period in 2012.
