COAST GUARD ICEBREAKING ACTIVITY ON THE GREAT LAKES
A proposal is described for Coast Guard icebreakers to keep navigable waters on the Great Lakes open to commerce during the winter months in order to minimize seasonal effects on commerce, industry and other modes of transportation; to conduct Search and Rescue missions; and to assist other agencies in the prevention of flooding caused by ice accumulation. The following States will be affected: Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Measures to keep navigable waters open in winter may have adverse environmental effects on shoreline and harbor areas. It may also have an adverse effect on the local life style of islanders and winter sportsmen.
