INDIRECT ECONOMIC EFFECT FROM GULF INTRACOASTAL WATERWAY COMMERCE IN TEXAS

The study evaluates the indirect economic effect of the Texas Gulf Intra-coastal Waterway and its tributaries on Texas. Determination of indirect economic effects was based on an initial calculation of the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway's contribution to the five coastal SMSAs. The aggregate economic stimulus of both direct and indirect contributions from waterway activities consisting of tax, education, and manufacturing revenues, income, waterway maintenance and industrial construction expenditures came to $3.9 billion, equivalent to 4.5 percent of the Texas State Product. This figure applies only to the waterway and does not describe the total impact of the entire coastal zone.
