National Waterways Foundation Releases Waterway Profiles for 17 States

The National Waterways Foundation (NWF), in partnership with Cambridge Systematics, released a series of inland waterways profiles for 17 States: Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.

With attractive reader-friendly graphics, the Adobe pdf profiles demonstrate the vital role of inland waterways to each state’s economy and transportation network.

Updating profiles produced in 2011 for the Chamber of Commerce, the NWF profiles provide accessible talking points for waterways advocates, members of Congress, State legislators and other policy makers.

The profiles contain aggregated data up to 2018 from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, U.S. Department of Agriculture, state agencies, Federal Highway Administration, and Bureau of Labor Statistics.

This article comes from U.S. Department of Agriculture's Sept. 3, 2020 Grain Transportation Report.
