AN ANALYSIS OF THE TRANSPORT OF COAL AND OIL TO THE LAKE CHAMPLAIN BASIN

The objective of this report was to prepare an analysis of the various types of oil and coal transport in the Lake Champlain Basin. The three types of transport presently in use are: (1) barges, which utilize the Hudson River, the Champlain Canal, and Lake Champlain; (2) trucks, coming from oil suppliers in the Albany, New York area, and several locations in New England; and (3) railroads, transporting petroleum products from the Albany, New York area. Economic and environmental factors such as projections relating to oil use and storage, potential oil spill concerns, distance, and capacity of carrying units were also considered.
