On May 26, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers launched a new website to provide the public and industry with nationally issued Notices To Navigation Interests (NTNI).

The site will keep navigation interests up to date on events that affect waterway navigation, such as maintenance activities, hazards to navigation, dredging, river bank protection, and other pertinent information. The site does not contain all notices, such as those published by the Coast Guard and other federal agencies. The NTNI website can be found here.
