Water Resources System
Integral to Competitiveness of
US Economy and Security 31

When it comes to handling a certain type of
cargo, some ports immediately spring to mind as
industry leaders. It may be the luck of location,
years of honing expertise or a willingness to
support shippers as they expand.

We have a lot of work to do in order to ensure
that our water resources system can sustain the
competitiveness of the American economy and
protect our national security, and WRRDA 2016
offers a critical, timely opportunity to do just that.
