Navigation funding

Navigation Funding

  • America’s Infrastructure condition

  • Risk and Reliability

  • Corps post-Katrina evaluation of dams and levees

    • Finding Problems – Funds to Fix?

  • Navigation must begin to develop and implement risk/reliability assessments

    • Channels

    • Navigation Locks


Reliability navigation locks

Navigation Lock Unavailability, 1991-2005

Total Hours Scheduled vs. Unscheduled without Ice

Reliability – Navigation Locks


Where we are

Where We Are

Inland Navigation

  • Reliability

    • Unscheduled lock closures

    • Objective - Five Year Development Plan: less than 20,000 hours of unscheduled closures

    • FY09 pursue first year of incremental improvement

  • Corps wide Navigation Lock assessment

  • Prioritized list of non-routine maintenance

  • Maintenance management software being deployed - FEM


Where we are1

Where We Are

Coastal Navigation

  • Navigation Channels – 1100 projects

  • Reliability

    • Channel availability

    • Determined by condition surveys

  • Objective: Channel should be available __% of the time


Where we are2

Where We Are

Channel Availability

  • Initial effort: Projects with greater than 10M tons per year

  • Establish Performance Standard

  • Determine channel availability trend

    • FY 2005, 2006, 2007

    • Five Year Development Plans

    • FY 2009 Improvement Increment


Nav channel cross section

Nav Channel Cross Section

  • Channel Availability

  • Depth at Centerline (CL)

  • Depth at Channel Toe

  • Depth at Quarter Points

Advanced Maintenance

Allowable Overdepth


Where we are3

Where We Are

Channel Availability

  • Level of Service Standard

    • Full project depth

    • Half project width, 95% of the time

  • Channel availability trend

    • FY 2005: 38%

    • FY 2006: 35%

    • FY 2009 – 2013: get to 95%

    • FY 2009 Improvement Increment


Risk categories and levels

Risk Categories and Levels


Where we re going

Where We’re Going

  • Objective based – level of service

  • Risk and Reliability are the key elements

    • Economic impact of less than project depth

  • Navigation Structures Risk and Reliability being developed

    • Jetties, Breakwaters, River training works

  • Convey results to Economists


Status

Status

  • OMB indicating agreement with this approach

  • Corps Districts view this as do-able

  • Beginning discussions with navigation customers and stakeholders

  • Feedback?
