''Inland navigation: Locks, Dams,and Channels (ASCE Manuals and experiences on Engineering perform No. 94)'' was once ready via a role committee of the Waterways committee, that is a part of the Waterways, Ports, Coastal, and Ocean department. The handbook presents info on making plans, layout, building, and operation of the USA waterways utilized by barge site visitors. many of the details comes from layout standards and greater than a hundred years of expertise of the U.S. military Corps of Engineers. The Corps has outfitted greater than 220 lock and dam initiatives on US waterways and keeps greater than 25,000 miles of inland navigation channels. This guide additionally comprises a listing of the Corps lock and Dam tasks and six case histories

2 Channel Dimensions Section 5 of the Rivers and Harbors Appropriation Act approved 4 March 1915 (PL 291,1915), outlines the basis for channel dimensions as follows. That in the preparation of projects under this and subsequent river and harbor Acts, unless otherwise expressed, the channel depths referred to shall be understood to signify the depth at mean low water in tidal waters tributary to the Atlantic and Gulf coasts and at mean lower low water in tidal waters tributary to the Pacific coast and the mean depth for a continuous period of fifteen days of the lowest water in the navigation season of any year in rivers and nontidal channels, and the channel dimensions specified shall be understood to admit of such increase at the entrances, bends, sidings, and turning places as may be necessary to allow of the free movement of boats.
Visibility can be affected by weather conditions such as heavy fog, rain, or snow, channel alignment, and location of the pilot with respect to the head of the tow.
