USACE to host Great Lakes “Shallow Draft Recreational Harbor” meeting

Published April 9, 2018

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will hold a Great Lakes “Shallow Draft Recreational Harbor” meeting Tuesday from 1:30 pm to 3:00 p.m. (EDT) at multiple locations throughout the Great Lakes region, as well as via the web and teleconference.  

The focus of the meeting will be on the needs of shallow draft recreational harbors, highlighting funding issues and system requirements.
