Abstract : The U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory hosted a %Navigation Lock and Dam Inspection and Emergency Repairs' workshop on 18-20 April 2006. The workshop was sponsored by the Navigation Systems Research Program and was attended by over 70 people from the Corps Districts, Divisions, and the ERDC laboratories as well as industry representatives. The primary purposes of the workshop were to examine current procedures used by the Corps for inspection and emergency repairs by presenting case studies and experiences and follow up on these discussions with suggestions and recommendations for improvement. Ongoing ERDC research and development in the areas of inspection and emergency repairs was also presented. The proceedings from the workshop will be available in the near future on the CHL Web site.
