POC

 


 

Problem Addressed:  

Corps planners must prioritize maintenance activities and construction work on the nation’s locks and dams to ensure that available dollars are used to the maximum effect on projects with the greatest need or the greatest potential return on investment. In order to do this, reliable data is needed.

 


 

Objective:

 

Study objectives include an overview of the work done, a detailed survey of shippers that use the facility, a more limited survey of the major towing companies in the area, and an analysis of Lock Performance Monitoring System Data during the time periods of the projects. The study also examines the lessons learned.

 


 

Benefits:  

The study will help Corps planners better understand the costs and benefits of maintenance and construction projects on the nation's lock and dam systems. This understanding will enable the Corps to better prioritize projects and mitigate the effects of maintenance-related closures.
