Summary

In 2017, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Geological Survey, and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers undertook a large-scale interagency field study to determine the influence of commercial barge vessels on the efficacy of the Electric Dispersal Barrier System (EDBS) in the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal (CSSC) in preventing fish passage. This study included a series of trials in which a tow, consisting of a tug vessel and fully-loaded barges, transited the EDBS in both upstream-bound (n = 65) and downstream-bound (n = 66) directions. The U.S. Geological Survey measured velocity profiles during these trials using a SonTek Argonaut SW 3000 kHz acoustic Doppler velocity meter (SW) and a wall-mounted 600 kHz Teledyne RD Instruments [...]
