  • Spotlight on Alex Webb, Assistant District Counsel, St. Paul District

    SAINT PAUL - Alex Webb collaborates with engineers, biologists, and other experts to keep communities safe from flood risk posed by several major river systems within the boundaries of the St. Paul District of the Army Corps of Engineers. Since the 1970s, and more recently in response to record-breaking floods of 2011 on the Souris River, the Corps has constructed levees and conducted studies to evaluate water supply and flood control options. Most recently, Alex has advised his team on a multi-phase flood control project on the Souris River that will provide protection to adjacent North Dakota communities.
  • Army Corps of Engineers reminds visitors to practice water safety

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – As millions of Americans plan visits to our nation’s lakes and rivers, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers reminds visitors of the importance of practicing safe, sensible, and thoughtful activities in, on, and around open water.
  • Spotlight on Janis Millete, Seattle District

    From Antiquated to Automated: USACE wetland delineation tool helps revolutionize regulatory process

    According to the Environmental Protection Agency, United States has lost more than half of its wetlands since the 1600s, and approximately 35 percent of the world’s wetlands were lost between 1970 and 2015. To protect against further impairment of wetlands and the essential functions they provide, the U.S. established a policy of "no net loss" of wetlands, as well as procedures to ensure responsible management of wetland resources.
  • New engineering index will strengthen coastal management decisions

    Coastlines are ever-changing. Whether from nonstop wave action, wind or storms, these landscapes constantly shift and reshape, causing challenges for coastal managers. In response, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) researchers have created a tool to help assess the resiliency of our nation’s coastlines and improve coastal management strategies.
  • USACE team ensures Army’s and DOD’s data is protected

    Rapid technological advancement has ushered in a time of near-constant innovation for the Department of Defense (DOD), bringing both previously unimaginable progress and a marked increase in threats. Cybersecurity has emerged as a critical aspect of day-to-day DOD operations, and the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) Information Technology Laboratory (ITL) is home to a Security Control Assessor-Validator (SCA-V) team that is playing an integral role in securing vulnerable infrastructure and sensitive data.
  • Stronger, Lighter, More Durable: Ultra-High Performance Concrete is key to a more sustainable and modern infrastructure network

    As the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) works to modernize the nation’s infrastructure, it does so at a time when existing infrastructure components are operating well past their original lifespans. In the case of many of the locks supporting inland navigation, new techniques and technologies are critical to make sure lock facilities – some built in the 1930s – continue operating for another 100 years or more.
  • Investing in Our Planet: Earth Day 2023

    On April 22, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) joins our global community in the celebration of Earth Day. Protecting and preserving our environment is an enduring mission for USACE.
