Waterways Management services have been applied to: dredging studies, navigational planning, vessel traffic analysis, and the analysis of the deployment of waterways management resources by waterways management agencies.

Example - Fraser River Draught Utilization Study, Fraser River, Canada

The client, the Canadian Coast Guard, required an analysis of deep sea vessel traffic on the Fraser River over a five year period.  The purpose of the analysis was to determine the degree to which deep sea vessels were taking advantage of available water depths. 

Example - National Commercial Channel Inventory, British Columbia

The client, the Canadian Coast Guard, maintains a national database of vessel movements, vessel water depth requirements and of marine facilities, shippers and carriers.  Lauga & Associates carried out several assignments in British Columbia for this project.

Example - Mackenzie River Early Deployment Study

The client, the Canadian Coast Guard, provides seasonal navigation services on 2,000 km of the Mackenzie River main channel.  Lauga & Associates assess the logistical impact of shortening the shipping season on the Mackenzie River.

Example - St. Lawrence Seaway Management Model

The International Joint Commission needed a vessel operations model that the Seaway managers could use to select water level and flow management plans.  Lauga & Associates provided a simulation software package to measure vessel operations and cost impacts.

Example - Benefits of Navigation on the Upper Fraser River

The Canadian Coast Guard needed an investigation of the benefits of navigational improvements on the Upper Fraser River, Sumas to Hope.  Lauga & Associates provide a review of navigational issues, marine traffic data and determined the tax payer benefit of keeping marine cargoes off of highways.

Example - Marine Traffic Survey for Courtenay, Squamish and the Upper Fraser River

The Canadian Coast Guard needed traffic data about commercial vessel operations in Courtenay, Squamish and the Upper Fraser River.  Lauga & Associates provided detailed origin-destination traffic data and mapped the locations of marine activity.
