Great Lakes &

Ohio River Division

– Cohesive Strategy – Five Year Development Perspective

Provide cohesive Navigation System development needs

  • Presents cohesive $2.8 billion ORS & $0.9 billion GL optimum needs gelling the individual projects into system perspective

Concisely describe system development rationale

  • Summarizes construction development sequence, maintenance, and investigations

Reflect optimum system funding needs

  • Emphasizes risk & reliability as technical foundation for investments

Facilitate stakeholders involvement & participation

  • Centralizes key system information and encourages meetings to promote understanding

– Cohesive Strategy – Five Year Development Perspective

Congressional commentary in FY07 House Report:

…the Great Lakes and Ohio River Division …Ohio River and Tributaries Navigation System Five-Year Development Perspective is ...the most comprehensive and informative report that has come to the attention of the Committee. In it, the Corps attempts to assess the current status and ‘‘acceptable’’ level of performance for projects under its jurisdiction…. The Committee applauds the efforts of the Great Lakes and Ohio River Division and other interested parties in the development of this ‘‘perspective.’’

End result: $10,000,000 additional for regional maintenance

Acceptable Reliability Performance Standards

A

Virtually no compromise to authorized Federal project features accepted.

Minimal compromise to authorized Federal project features accepted.

There is a small probability that degraded conditions may result in inefficient operations i.e., slower and/or more costly navigation operations.

B

Moderate compromise to authorized Federal project features accepted.

There is a high probability that degraded conditions may result in inefficient operations, i.e., slower and/or more costly navigation operations.

C

Significant compromise to authorized Federal project features accepted. Closures of seven or more days are scheduled annually.

D

Extreme compromise to authorized Federal project features accepted. Closures of at least two weeks are scheduled annually.
