Aransas County Navigation District
Welcome to the Aransas County Navigation District.
We exist to conserve and develop natural resources, including the navigation of its inland and coastal waterways, the surface and submerged land deeded to it by letters of patent and acts of the Texas Legislature and all other land and water resources acquired for the benefit of the citizens of Aransas County.
In less complicated terms, ACND is responsible to maintain and improve public waterways and public waterfront facilities, such as harbors, boat ramps, fishing piers and the Rockport Beach.
At the current time, ACND has 5 main facilities under its purview: Rockport Harbor, Fulton Harbor, Cove Harbor, Copano Bay Boat Ramp and the Rockport Beach.
The Rockport, Fulton, Cove Harbors will have power until the storm surge pushes waters over the piers. At that point shore power will be turned off. Personnel will be on call for EMERGENCIES ONLY.
The Rockport Beach & its boat ramp will be closed beginning 11pm tonight (8/24/2017) and will remain closed through the weekend.
If you bring your own sand bags and shovels, sand will be available for free on Water Street where the ACND contruction project is (behind the downtown merchants).
