When curtains, booms or other items are deployed in navigable waters, marking the work area with visual navigation aids is generally safer, and often mandatory.


Buoys comply with the standards of the Canadian Coast Guard’s Canadian Aids to Navigation System (TP 968) and Transport Canada’s Owner’s Guide to Private Buoys (TP 14799E).
