  1. Inland Navigation -A National Perspective Jim Walker USACE, Headquarters November 8, 2007

  2. Navigation Program • Almost 1100 Congressionally authorized and constructed navigation projects • 27 inland navigation systems • 237 Navigation locks • Aging infrastructure • Funding • Annual Operation and Maintenance • Non-routine Maintenance

  3. Navigation Program • Reliable Inland River Systems • Lock Availability • Scheduled and Unscheduled Lock Closures • Channel Availability • Depth and Width

  4. Navigation Lock Unavailability, 1991-2005 Total Hours Scheduled vs. Unscheduled without Ice Reliability – Navigation Locks

  5. Lock Reliability • Corps wide Navigation Lock condition assessment • Prioritized list of maintenance needs • Reliability Goal • Unscheduled lock closures • Five Year Development Plan: less than 20,000 hours of unscheduled closures • FY09 pursue first year of incremental improvement

  6. Channel Availability - Coastal • 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

  7. Channel Availability - Coastal • Channel Cross Section • Depth at Centerline (CL) • Depth at Channel Toe • Depth at Quarter Points CL Qtr Pt Qtr Pt Toe Toe Advanced Maintenance Allowable Overdepth

  8. Channel Availability - Coastal • 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

  9. Future Direction RAMP • Risk Informed • Asset Management • Performance

  10. RAMP RISK Categories • Structural • Operational • Life Safety • Economic • Environmental • Security

  11. RAMP ASSET MANAGEMENT • Maintenance Management • Use for Repair, Rehab, Replace, Retire decision • FEM is the Corps system • Deploying in 2008-09

  12. RAMP PERFORMANCE • Tonnage • Performance Standard • Funding • Achieve appropriate levels of risk • Achieve level of performance • Report what we are able to accomplish with the funds provided • Transparent process – stakeholders, public, Congress

  13. Future Direction • Method needs to be easy to explain and understand • Administration – OMB Economists • Congress • American Public • America’s Infrastructure must become a National priority

  14. RAMP OMB Feedback • Concur with the approach • Performance measure agreement • Data collection and reporting underway • Improve OMB PART rating from current ‘Results Not Demonstrated’

  15. Where We Are Nav Lock High Performing Operation (HPO) • 85% of Inland Navigation expended on annual operation and maintenance • HPO to evaluate effectiveness and efficiency • Performance Work Statement to be released for public review and comment in Nov/Dec • www.navlocks-hpo.usace.army.mil/HPO_System.htm

  16. Conclusion The Bottom Lines • Investing in the Navigation system is investing in economic development • America’s Infrastructure must become a National priority
