AN ANALYSIS OF CONUS INLAND WATERWAYS FOR NATIONAL DEFENSE
This study is an analysis of historic peacetime and planned contingency movement of DOD cargo on the US inland waterways. Inland waterways, for the purpose of this study, are defined as including navigable rivers and canals possessing water depth of 9 feet and intrabay and intraocean waters capable of supporting DOD cargo movement. A resume of public terminals possessing desired characteristics is included. While a lack of both peacetime and planned contingency use precludes the designation of specific routes and/or public terminals as critical, certain routes, due to the frequency and/or economy of use, are designated as important to the national defense. However, in every instance, alternative delivery mean (rail or highway) are available.
