Abstract:

The River Point Directory is a quick-reference working document for use by engineers and planners in the general fields of river navigation and waterborne commodity movements. All navigable rivers, bayous, streams, and other such waterways in the Mississippi River-Gulf Coast region are included. The rivers included in the Directory are, in general, listed in the order of their importance as commodity transportation arteries with regard to varying degrees of impact on the economic welfare of the United States. Most of the relatively minor streams and bayous are listed under the three responsible U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Districts Mobile, New Orleans, and Galveston. The Directory is, in essence, a compilation of significant data relating to each commercial dock, town, landing, navigation lock, bridge, junction, and other such river points contained in selected portions of the U.S. Army Engineer Waterborne Commerce Statistical Center WCSC Port and Dock Code Manual Parts 2 and 3, dated 1 January 1973.
