COMPREHENSIVE STUDY OF WATER AND RELATED LAND RESOURCES, PUGET SOUND AND ADJACENT WATERS--APPENDIX VIII (NAVIGATION)

The objective of the navigation study was to develop plans for navigation improvements to meet foreseeable short- and long-term needs of shallow and deep draft commerce, transport oriented industry, and recreational boating. The study included an inventory of harbors, channels, small boat basins, terminal facilities and support areas, vessels, waterborne commerce, water-oriented industries, and potential sites for navigation related developments. Investigations were made of existing problems related to physical limitations of channels, harbors, terminal facilities, support areas, and water transport oriented industrial development. Future demands for terminal facilities and water transport oriented industries were projected as were waterborne commerce and moorage demand by pleasure craft. From these projections and the inventory of existing facilities, needs for future navigation-related development were determined. Plans were then formulated to meet the needs. In keeping with the methodology employed in the comprehensive study of Puget Sound and Adjacent Waters the navigation study was undertaken on a single-purpose basis with no attempt made to resolve possible conflicts with other resource uses.
