Abstract : This report, Engineering Analysis of the Waterways System, had two main objectives: (1) To assess the capability of the existing physical waterway system, and (2) To develop a methodology for assessing potential modifications to the existing system in response to strategies to meet future demand. The report addressed the physical waterway system in the following four major components: lock capacity, channel maintenance, channel conditions for fleet operation, and waterway availability.
