GREAT II FLEETING SURVEY FOR THE COMMERCIAL TRANSPORTATION WORK GROUP OF THE GREAT RIVER ENVIRONMENTAL ACTION TEAM (GREAT II) ROCK ISLAND DISTRICT CORPS OF ENGINEERS

The survey objectives were: to identify areas used for fleeting within the Rock Island District, Corps of Engineers; to document and evaluate the physical condition of fleeting areas; and to identify the impact of fleeting and assess shoreline damage in fleeting areas, and to recommend preventive measures that are both environmentally viable and economically feasible. The conclusions are: Fleeting is a necessary and vital link in the economic health of the GREAT II area; Fleeting acts to serve existing industry and does not necessarily precipitate new industry; Physical damage as a direct result of fleeting seems to be minimal; and Fleeting is not a significant user of the available shoreline. In pool 16 where fleeting is relatively heavy, compared to other pools, there are 231 miles of shoreline and fleeting may occupy a little more than 1/2 of 1%.
