For over a decade, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has tried to convince the public that deepening the main channel of the Delaware River to 45 feet is in the public interest and does not threaten the Delaware River ecosystem and is economically justified.
This report is composed of three parts, an introduction and overview of the project, an evaluation of the Army Corps' most recent economic analysis of the project, and a review of some of the more recent and more significant environmental concerns regarding the project.
