The appendix is organized into a regional summary and 7 subregion chapters, which cover the areas pertinent to commercial navigation. The purpose of Appendix X, Navigation, is to provide a broad picture of the important role water transportation has played in the economic development of the region, an inventory of existing waterway improvements and harbor facilities, projections of future needs and some general indication of measures that could be constructed to satisfy those needs. Measures to satisfy needs include all facets of navigation improvements required by commercial deep and shallow draft vessels and smaller fishing vessels. Each of the coastal subregions examines climate, tides, economic development as well as other forms of transportation. Existing navigation facilities such as harbors, channels, navigation aids, commercial traffic, deep draft port facilities, barge and raft facilities are also covered. Projected conditions and needs involving the economic outlook, role of transportation, prospective water-borne commerce and adequacy of existing facilities as well as the measures to satisfy these needs are included.
