Waterways Council Debuts New Website

Friday, July 09, 2004
Waterways Council, Inc. (WCI) has created a unique web site –www.waterwayscouncil.org – to educate the general public about the value of a modern and well-maintained national system of ports and inland waterways. The site includes general information about WCI; a discussion of the waterways from their earliest beginning during the Lewis and Clark era to the present; a look at how “Waterways Work for America” in different industries; a U.S. map which highlights inland waterways’ priority projects and offers in-depth profiles on these projects; profiles and analysis for states with major waterways systems; information on “Restoring Trust to the Trust Fund” and “Our Lock and Dams: Aging Ungracefully”; a links page which offers visitors a variety of waterways resources in the private sector and government; waterways press contacts and media coverage of WCI’s activities; a Members Only section, and more. “It is our hope that the new Waterways Council, Inc. web site will serve as a resource for the highest quality information to those who want to learn more about the critical importance of our Nation’s ports and inland waterways, and the need to maintain them at the highest levels of efficiency,” said R. Barry Palmer, President and CEO of Waterways Council, Inc. “We expect to receive many visitors to the site from the general public, from the private sector, from government, and from our membership and we welcome them,” he continued.
