8 Advantages and Value to the State of Tennessee Modal Comparisons – One barge = 70 trucks = 16 rail cars. – 63 million tons shipped from/thru/to the State of Tennessee in 2008 = 2,520,000 trucks. – Emissions are 20% to 66% lower for barges. – A barge can move one ton of cargo 576 miles on one gallon of fuel. A truck can move the same ton only 155 miles on one gallon. Navigation – 1,062 miles of navigable waterways linking to 21 States with global access through New Orleans and Mobile. – Approximately 63 million tons shipped via TN River (excluding AL portion) and Cumberland Rivers annually. Hydropower – Six Cumberland Dams producing power valued at $97 M/ year. – Numerous TVA Dams on TN River. Flood Control/ Supply – Damage Savings of $41 M /year. – Cumberland – 66 intakes – 1.3 T g/y.

13 Advantages and Future Opportunities Reduces roadway and bridge maintenance/repair costs. Lowers freight rates for States shippers, farmers, and manufacturers. Relieves congestion on our highways. Improves public safety. Ensures continued funding for multiple-use of the waterways (recreation, hydro, etc.)

14 Advantages and Future Opportunities Our waterways are vital to national initiatives relative to freight capacity, fuel-efficiency, environment, and safety. With increasing transportation needs and changing transportation patterns, the waterways will continue to grow in their importance. Our Waterways and Ports should play pivotal roles with respect to economic development.

15 Thank you for your time and the Opportunity. The Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway Development Authority Mike Tagert Office: 888-TENN-TOM
