Navigation Condition Surveys
 
The New Orleans District, Operations Division performs routine hydrographic surveys to monitor local river and waterway navigation conditions. This information is used as a decision making tool for channel maintenance operations.

The collected data is processed into MicroStation-format CADD files. The surveys are also very useful to supplement published navigational charts with more recent shoaling and other channel condition data.
