In the next few years some of the highest profile TMDL's will be done at the nations’ major harbors and seaports. One factor that will often need to be addressed by those modeling these systems is the physical changes that occur due to deepening and widening of navigation channels. Channel depths at most U.S. ports typically range from 35 to 45 feet. The current generation of Post-Panamax containerships require channels from 45 to 53 feet to sail safely. Major harbors that are slated for deepening include Charleston, Wilmington, Baltimore, Galveston, Los Angeles, Oakland, Miami and New York-New Jersey. The largest of all these projects is the planned New York-New Jersey Harbor Navigation Study.
