The Five Year Development Plan (FYDP) was developed to guide the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in planning for Great Lakes navigation system needs over a given five-year span, defined in this report as the years 2007-2012. The intent is to establish a program that thoroughly engages stakeholders and focuses resources on the system’s most critical needs in terms of reducing risk and providing optimal reliability. The goal of the program is to maximize benefits using a cohesive, basin-wide approach and then to structure funding requirements accordingly. Published by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, 2006.
