History of Dredging and Compensation Work in the St. Clair and Detroit River



Contributors
Ralph Moulton;Scott Thieme
Abstract
The history of past physical changes from dredging for navigation purposes in the St. Clair - Detroit River system was reviewed and presented. Previous studies on placement of compensation works to offset the effects of dredging were also reviewed. Physical changes for navigation purposes first started in 1852 in the St. Clair River and 1872 in the Detroit River. The discussion includes government legislations and Canada-U.S. agreements authorizing the navigation deepening projects.
