    Threatened, Endangered Species team creates win-win situations for military

    The role of the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC), Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (CERL), Threatened and Endangered Species (TES) program is to identify and understand areas of targeted endangered species management and conservation. Why is this important? The presence of TES on military lands can result in military training restrictions, but effective management and conservation has the potential to substantially deconflict military training and endangered species mandates. In many cases, this presents a win-win scenario where endangered species thrive on installations while military operations maintain flexibility.

  • Synergy for safety: ERDC partners with local fire department for increased protection

    When it comes to emergency response, it’s said that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. For the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) and the City of Vicksburg Fire Department (VFD), the old adage is more than just a saying, it’s a blueprint for success. Until the mid-1990s, ERDC was home to its own fire department on the Waterways Experiment Station. After that, fire protection was transferred over to the City of Vicksburg.
