Inland Navigation: Locks, Dams,and Channels provides information on planning, design, construction, and operation of the U.S. waterways used by barge traffic. Most of the information comes from design criteria and more than 100 years of experience of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The Corps has built more than 220 lock and dam projects on U.S. waterways and maintains more than 25,000 miles of inland navigation channels. This Manual also includes an inventory of the Corps lock and dam projects and six case histories.
