Eight Pintech gas lighted buoys are to be placed in the St. Lawrence river between Ogdensburg and Cape Vincent. They will burn 176 days each. The body of the buoy forms a receiver for compressed gas and is of sufficient size to give proper buoyancy for flotation, and of sufficient strength to hold a pressure of 150 to 180 pounds per square inch. An appropriation has also been secured for erecting a lighthouse at the head of Carleton Island.
