Water Resources Development Act of 2020 Comment Period and Stakeholder Sessions

The Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Civil Works (ASA(CW)) is issuing this notice for a comment period for stakeholders and other interested parties to provide input and recommendations to the ASA(CW) on any provisions in the Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) of 2020.  The Office of the ASA(CW) will consider all comments received by May 7, 2021 before any implementation guidance is issued.

Five stakeholder sessions will be held to enable the public to provide input on any provisions in WRDA 2020.  Commenters can provide information on any provision of interest during each session.  We encourage stakeholders with specific interests to a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) mission area to participate in the session aligned with that mission area.  The ASA(CW) and the Corps will co-host focused sessions using webinars/teleconferences.
