Lake Superior Plan Formulation

Commercial Navigation Performance Indicators

David Wright;Ralph Moulton
Performance indicator development for evaluating Lake Superior regulation plans and the impacts of water levels and flows on commercial navigation interests. The primary impact on commercial navigation is related to a vessels' carrying capacity and cargo carrying costs. Change in the cost of transportation is a performance indicator developed to evaluate the impacts on the navigation interest for a range of Lake Superior outflow regulation plans or other structural options. The monetary cost is determined for Great Lakes navigation, exclusive of port fees and port cargo handling. Commercial shipping costs include: vessel capital and operating costs, fuel costs, pilotage charges and Canadian Coast Guard fees (marine navigation service and maintenance dredging service fees) only.
