dc.descriptionAbstract: Ice control in river harbors and fleeting areas in the northern tier of the United States east of the Mississippi River is handled mainly by the barge and towboat companies. Fleeting area protection in many locations is provided by ice piers and mooring cells. When possible, unused barges are anchored in side channels and below islands or set along one side of the waterway in large groups for ice protection. Icebreaking is done by towboats, without barges, and a wide track is broken out. Alternative methods of ice control are discussed.-
