Just Announced:  Keynote for CLEAN WATERWAYS 2022

keynote address: state of the inland waterways INDUSTRY

Peter Stephaich, Chairman & CEO, Campbell Transportation Company, Inc.

The waters of the Allegheny, Monongahela, and the Ohio remain an essential economic lifeblood for Pittsburgh and region. They also happen to have one of the oldest systems of locks and dams in the country. With the recent award of a massive infrastructure investment of over $850 million for the Upper Ohio Navigation Project of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, things are going to get busy.

However, by no means does that mean that the industry has not been continually focused on improvements in multiple areas, notably safety and environmental programs, and operating efficiencies. In this session Mr. Stephaich will highlight a number of topics to include updates on the market, infrastructure, regulations, intellectual research, carbon reduction initiatives.

The updates will conclude with time for questions and answers.
