Abstract: The Waterway Point Directory is a quick-reference working document for use by engineers and planners in the general fields of river navigation and waterborne commodity movements. All navigable rivers, bays, streams, creeks & other such waterways in the Great Lakes, Atlantic, & Pacific areas are included in this initial printing of the Directory. The waterways included in the Directory are listed by responsible Corps district in three separate appendices : (1.) Appendix E - Great Lakes Area, (2.) Appendix F Atlantic Area, and (3.) Appendix G - Pacific Area. The Directory is, in essence, a compilation of significant data relating to each commercial dock, town, landing, navigation lock, bridge, junction, and other such river points contained in selected portions of the U. S. Army Engineer Waterborne Commerce Statistics Center (WCSC) Port and Dock Code Manual (Parts 1, 2, 3, and 4). Eight other different types of reference documents and maps were used to compile the information on each river point. The following information, when pertinent and available, was included in the Directory for each of the river points listed : (A.) WCSC port and dock codes, (B.) descriptive title of each point, (C.) point type code [Appendix C], (D.) area code [Appendix D], (E.) location in terms of the following: (I.) state, (II.) county or county equivalent, (III.) Business Economic Area (BEA], (IV.) Strategic Metropolitan Statistical Area (SMSA], and (V.) Water Resource Area [WRA]. A special Corps Performance Monitoring System [PMS] lock code was specified for each active lock listed in the Directory.
