Abstract : The lock Performance Monitoring System (PMS) is a part of the Inland Navigation Systems Analysis (INSA) program and encompasses the collection, editing, maintenance and analysis of data collected at all Corps-owned and operated locks. The data have been collected since March of 1975 and consist of information describing the traffic through the locks as well as the physical aspects of lockages. The quarterly summary of selected statistics presented in the appendix provides an overview of the traffic and operation at each lock. The quarterly report is presented as a set of three tables for each Corps District. Information reported for each lock and chamber include: Table 1 - A listing providing the name of the lock, the river on which the lock is and its dimensions. In those cases where there is no quarterly information, this table will be the only display for the district; Table 2 - A table providing, by direction and total, the number of tows, commercial vessels other than tows, recreational vessels, barges (empty and loaded), commercial lockages, recreational lockages and tonnage; and Table 3 - A summary of approach, entry, chambering and exit times (maximum, minimum and average) and the number of delays, total delay time, maximum delay time and average delay time.
