  49. Environmental Compliance Improves Post-Disaster Restoration in Puerto Rico

    Safe access routes, electricity, drinking water, and sanitation are all essential in the aftermath of a disaster. Less instinctual, yet every bit as essential to long-term recovery, is minimizing damage to wildlife and natural resources during the restoration of critical infrastructure. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, under a mission assignment from FEMA, deployed hundreds of first responders to construct emergency access routes, demolish damaged structures, provide temporary, protective tarps for exposed roofs, and remove and dispose of debris after Hurricanes Irma and Maria devastated Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. FEMA also directed USACE to provide temporary emergency power to critical facilities and later assigned USACE the largest emergency power restoration mission, in U.S. history, in support of the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority. Included among the first responders are environmental science and management professionals who inspect power restoration project sites daily to assess compliance with environmental regulations including the Clean Water, Endangered Species and Fish and Wildlife Coordination Acts.

  2. Corps Talk: Dredging for Compliments (S1Ep10)

    Corps Talk: Dredging for Compliments S1:Ep10 Last episode, Corps Talk had a special segment about their home – historic Fort Norfolk. And this month’s episode is absolutely nothing like that. Andie qualifies her inability to make deadlines by blaming the District Commander’s Course, which the Norfolk District hosted in October to assist incoming district commanders and deputy commanders in the Corps. On the flip side, though, she was able to track down and interview leadership throughout the USACE to see who is best in shameless self-promotion of their district and its people (Hint: find out who the winner is in the final chapter of the episode). Next month’s episode will feature our SSPD (Shameless Self-Promoting District) Award winning district.
