In the past 10 years, 88 percent of all USACE water-related fatalities were men and 68 percent were between the ages of 20 and 60. Also, 84 percent of those killed in water-related accidents were not wearing life jackets and 27 percent of boating fatalities were from falls overboard. In addition to boating falls, the activity that caused the most water-related fatalities was swimming in undesignated areas, according to data reported by the USACE National Operations Center (NOC) for Water Safety.

On March 16, 1802, the Army established the Corps of Engineers as a separate, permanent branch and gave engineers the responsibility for founding and operating the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. Since then, Army Corps of Engineers professionals have responded to changing defense requirements and played an integral part in the development of the country.
