Waterways Journal highlights research by CS and partner, National Waterways Foundation
In partnership with the National Waterways Foundation, Cambridge Systematics’ Paula Dowell, Katie Kirk and Isabel Victoria-Jaramillo estimated the economic impacts of the U.S. inland waterways system for 17 states. The graphics-rich profiles reveal the number of inland waterways-supported jobs, associated state and local tax revenue, volume of freight moving on the state’s inland waterways and how that equates to numbers of trucks, top inland commodities by weight and value, and key industries in the state supported by the inland waterways, among other benefits. The Waterways Journal article emphasizes the importance of this work to inland waterways advocates, members of Congress and other policy makers. Click here to read the full editorial.
