The primary mission of the Aids to Navigation Team New Orleans is the maintanence of ATON. The aids that ANT NOLA maintains are located along the Mississippi RIver and throughout various lakes, bayous, canals and rivers.
Lakes include: Lake Pontchartrain, Lake Maurepas, Lake Borgne and all other connecting waterways including the intercoastal waterway from English Lookout to Dupre Cut and Barataria Waterway.
ANT NOLA is currently assigned 405 aids, 3/4 of which are on land and 1/4 on the water.
ANT NOLA is the only aids to navigation team with an Auger Truck that is used to construct terrestrial aids similar to those built by construction tenders.
Personnel in ANT NOLA perform work similar to that of a telephone company in setting poles and stringing 120V AC commercial wire.
In the fall of each year, 122 aid sites are evaluated for brushing on the Lower MIssissippi River, using the bobcat to clear the majority of the sites.
