The Coast Guard is reviewing a stretch of the Potomac River, and they want public feedback before the comment period ends Monday.

They’re conducting a Waterways Analysis and Management System review of the Upper Potomac River from Hains Point near D.C. to the Harry Nice Bridge.

The review, from April through June, is looking to improve maritime efficiency in the area, the Coast Guard said in a news release Tuesday. It’ll focus on a range of area issues, including businesses, aids to navigation, emergency response plans and future development projects.
