Delay Aluminum Ingot Shipping
We recently contacted Governor Cuomo’s central New York representative,Colleen Deacon, about early season shipments of aluminum ingots into Port of Oswego. We have not heard back from Ms. Deacon.
"We hear that the major obstacle to having the governor take action on a delayed opening is shipment of aluminum ingots into the Port of Oswego. We understand the importance of keeping that supply chain properly functioning, and propose that a few weeks inventory of ingots could be supplied to the Port by rail as a smart alternative. Rail shipments of aluminum into the Port are currently part of the supply chain"
Save The River will continue to keep pressure on the authorities for a delayed 2020 opening of the Seaway. However, based on everything we hear, I think we should all be making plans for another high water year. There are record amounts of water that have to flow out of the Great Lakes down the River. We will keep you up to date as we get additional information on the water levels.
