Waterways Action Plan has Been Finalized

April 9, 2007

The Army Corps of Engineers, Coast Guard and towing industry announce the approval of the final version of the Waterways Action Plan. After nearly two years of research, development and collaboration, several individual river action plans have been consolidated into one comprehensive document, which incorporates the entire western rivers system. The purpose of this plan is to ensure safe and secure navigation along the western rivers. As such, this is a living document, which will be regularly updated to incorporate personnel responsibility changes, the addition of other rivers and lessons learned following river incidents. Even as a draft, this plan has proven effective and efficient during periods of seasonal high and low water, has prevented loss of life and property and has furthered the flow of river traffic.
