Videos of Barges on the Nanticoke River

 
 
 

The Nanticoke River has been proclaimed as one of the most scenic and natural rivers in the USA. How long do you think this will last with barge/tugs like this plowing up and down the river on a daily basis??  Barges up to 400 feet long pushed by tugs up to 80 feet in length with engines that produce over 3500 horsepower.

Scenes such as this can occur several times a day on the Nanticoke River. Notice the barge is loaded so heavily that water is coming over the sides and the speed of the Tug pushing the barge? Obviously they must not be concerned about running aground?
