NATIONAL SAFE BOATING WEEK IS MAY 22--28!

Learn from what the U.S. Coast Guard boating safety reports tell us: Operator inattention, improper lookout, operator inexperience, excessive speed, and alcohol rank as the top five primary contributing factors in accidents. This summer, recreational boaters can focus on these factors by putting down the cellphone, practicing using S.C.A.N. procedures to avoid distracted boating, taking a free boating safety course, slowing down, and driving more defensively, especially in congested boating areas. Alcohol use is the leading known contributing factor in fatal boating accidents, so save the celebration for after the boat is safely tied up for the night. Boat operators also need to recognize they are responsible for the safety of their guests, including inebriated ones.

Life Jacket Loaner Program

NATIONAL SAFE BOATING WEEK IS MAY 22--28!

The best life jacket is the one you will wear, meaning one that’s comfortable. There are many lightweight inflatable life jackets that fit the bill. Check the jacket’s label to ensure it’s approved for your type of boating. If the kids are visiting, don’t be tempted to put a child in an ill-fitting adult life jacket. The BoatUS Foundation’s Life Jacket Loaner program for kids offers a free and easy way to borrow an infant, child or teen life jacket for the day or weekend with locations at nearly 600 marinas, boat clubs, and other waterfront locations across the country.

It's time for Barging 101: Tidbit of the Week!
Barges are BIG. From top to bottom, a tow operating on the Lower Mississippi River is often taller than the height of the Empire State Building AND the Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower). 🏙️

What does #stewardship mean to you?

For us, it means taking care of something you don't own. This Earth is a gift. We only get to borrow it for a little while before passing it on. Let’s preserve it! Our children’s children deserve a healthy Earth.

Here are a few of the ways that #USACE practices #EnvironmentalStewardship. #RestoreOurEarth

Work Plan Funding Kick Starts Upper Ohio Project - The Waterways Journal

"Mary Ann Bucci, executive director for the Port of Pittsburgh Commission, noted that the projects are important for the continued success of river-related jobs in the region.

“The Ohio River is a major part of our nation’s inland waterways’ navigation system, and all three locks in the Pittsburgh District on the Ohio are old and need to be rebuilt,” she said. “To get this new start classification and initial funds dedicated for the Montgomery Lock near Beaver, Pa., is a big deal, especially to the more than 76,000 jobs in the region that are dependent on a reliable and efficient inland waterways system, and we are very appreciative to Congressman Lamb for lining up this project and making it happen.”"

With a $22 million boost for engineering, planning and the beginning of construction, a long-awaited Ohio River infrastructure project is moving forward.
