Coast Guard responds to derelict dock in Kodiak, Alaska
Date: April 01, 2013
District 17 Public Affairs Detachment Kodiak
KODIAK, Alaska — The Coast Guard is responding to a report of a derelict dock washing up on Zaimka Island near the Coast Guard Base in Kodiak Monday.

Coast Guard personnel from Base Kodiak are developing a plan to safely remove the dock and associated debris from the beach so it no longer pose a threat to maritime transportation or the local wildlife.

"The Coast Guard endeavors to be a good steward of federal lands and a good neighbor to the borough and other land owners in the region," said Capt. Jerald Woloszynski, commanding officer, Coast Guard Base Kodiak. "We will be working with our partners here in Kodiak to address this issue and mitigate any potential future hazard to navigation."

Zaimka Island along with the waters and submerged lands of Women’s Bay are within Coast Guard property boundaries. The land was withdrawn from the public domain for use by the Department of the Navy in 1939 by Executive Order 8278. The land was subsequently transferred to the Coast Guard in 1975 by Public Land Order 5550.
