AN INVESTIGATION OF ICE CLOGGED CHANNELS IN THE ST. MARYS RIVER

This study addresses itself to the problem of removing brash ice from Frechette Point to Six-Mile Point of the Little Rapids Cut of the St. Marys River system. The area and river system are described and estimates are made for partially clearing a channel 250 ft wide. Rough costs, based on dollars per horsepower, indicate that it would cost between 1 and 2 million dollars per clear channel mile per year. (Author)
