SAINT LAWRENCE RIVER ALL-YEAR NAVIGATION ICE CONTROL SYSTEM
The objective of this study was to prepare designs and specifications for an ice control system which would allow all-year navigation in the Brockville to Cardinal section of the international portion of the St. Lawrence River. The study involved operation of a distorted scale (horizontal scale, 1:150; vertical scale, 1:60) hydraulic model of the section of the river extending from Stillwells Point, New York to Red Mills, New York. Three alternative ice control systems were tested under varying river flowrates and stages and under varying ice conditions which included ice cover formation, consolidated ice covers, and spring breakup.
