Saginaw River Report - July 2022

There were a total of 20 commercial vessel passages on the Saginaw River for the month of July 2022, with 11 different docks receiving 23 separate deliveries of product, accounting for split cargos delivered to multiple docks.  This represents three fewer passages than in July 2021, and two fewer passages than the 5-year average of 22.  It is however equal to both the 10-year average and the 15-year average for July at 20 passages.

For the total number of commercial vessel passages for the year-to-date, the number is 79.  This number represents an increase of two passages based on the total from last year at this point.  Looking at the long term averages, it is an increase compared to the 5-year average of 77 passages, 10-year average of 66 passages, and the 15-year average of 68 passages.
