ASSESSMENT OF PORT, TERMINAL AND NAVIGATION IMPACTS RESULTING FROM THE 1993 UPPER MISSISSIPPI RIVER FLOOD

The primary objective of the study was to assess the impacts of the 1993 flood on the port and terminal facilities located along the closed waterways, and to determine the extent of infrastructure damage to transportation facilities that provide access to these ports and terminals. An additional objective was to analyze the responses of port and terminal operators to the 1995 flood and compare them to the lessons learned from the '93 event.
