    8. A Healthy Transportation SystemIs a Good Investment • Barging is the lowest cost, most environmentally friendly form of freight transportation • Low transportation costs enable growers to price commodities at levels the world can afford to buy • Half of Columbia River wheat exports arrive by barge; 25% of the export containers arrive by barge • Over 59,000 Northwest jobs are dependent or strongly influenced by Columbia River maritime commerce

    9. Strengths of the System • System is a significant national export gateway • Strong connections between inland ports and deep draft ports • Extensive cooperation between farmers, shippers, ports, pilots, federal agencies • Extremely supportive Congressional delegation

    10. Major Rehab Needs on the Horizon • Lower Monumental lock gate rehab (Lower Snake River) • Predicted cost of $26M • FY08 would be earliest budget; construction could occur in late '09 or '10 • McNary Dam (Columbia River) & other three other Lower Snake River locks: • Repairs in the future in conjunction with normally scheduled outages • Maintenance studies to be done in 2006 and 2007, depending on funding • Construction could occur in FY09 - FY11
