Since 2007, the Panama Canal Authority (ACP) has been carrying out an expansion project in order to accommodate larger vessels and increased traffic through the Panama Canal. This report addresses the following project goals: 1) provide land management reports for areas surrounding Lake Gatun; 2) suggest an alternative range structure for navigation; 3) improve the water quality stored on ACP tugboats; and, 4) provide preliminary designs for a new spillway. Collectively, the results from these projects have positive impacts on the environment, sustainability, efficiency, and safe transit of the Panama Canal to assure global operations.
