MAINTAINING THE NATION'S WATERWAYS

The requirement to dredge navigable waterways to maintain channel depths for shipping has become a problem of great national significance. The ability of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to dredge is declining. Unless ways can be found to continue the maintenance of waterways in the face of environmental, legal, and technical constraints, an economic situation that would adversely affect the entire economy will be precipitated. The purpose of this paper is to familiarize the reader with the Army's role in maintaining waterways, the problems it faces, and its efforts toward solving the problems.
