Mersey Guardian Coastal Survey Vessel will be grab sampling in Conwy Bay and Red Wharf Bay between 07:00 and 15:00
The sampling will involve sediment sampling for invertebrates using a 0.1m2 grab sampler, with associated sediment particle size at two sites in Conwy Bay and two sites in Red Wharf Bay. The sampling platform will be the survey vessel Mersey Guardian operated by the Environment Agency and Briggs Marine and Environmental Services Ltd crew. At the sampling target stations, a 0.1m2 scientific grab sampler will be carefully deployed approximately 10 times (at each location) from the dedicated scientific survey vessel by trained and skilled staff/crew using a motorised winch.
Mersey Guardian can be contacted on channel 12 or 16 on VHF

Due to some minor issues experienced during the routine sill gate maintenance works, we have elected to keep the sill gate buoyant during this weekend given the inclement weather, and pending further investigations works and tests. An update will be provided to all in due course.
Traffic lights will remain on RED throughout the weekend. Please contact the marina office for clearance levels above the sill gate before accessing and/or egressing the marina.
