Presentation will include an overview of the Corps’ mission and budget with particular focus on the Civil Works program including the recent Disaster Supplemental Appropriations and its water resources capabilities, including the development of modeling, mapping, and management tools.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers employs 33,000 civilian and 800 military personnel. With an annual budget exceeding $30 billion per year, the Corps workload is set to expand over the next several years, much in response to the 2017 and 2018 hurricanes. Corps engineers primarily work in support of the agency's Civil Works mission. This includes maintaining more than 700 dams; 2,000 miles of levees; and 13,000 miles of deep draft channels. The Corps maintains nearly 1,100 harbors through which nearly half of all U.S. consumer goods and 70-percent of imported oil passes. The Corps is also the largest producer of renewable energy in the U.S., generating 25-percent of the nation's hydropower. In addition, the Corps is the lead federal provider of outdoor recreation, managing 12 million acres of public lands and waters, including 55,000 miles of shoreline and 93,000 campsites.

The November Section meeting will feature a presentation by the Corps of Engineers’ Headquarters Engineering & Construction (E&C) Division. The E&C Division is responsible for engineering and construction throughout the enterprise, including support of both civil works and military missions. The Division has been particularly active recently with the execution of the 2017 Disaster Supplemental Appropriations, which provides an additional $17 billion for Civil Works projects; development of the Corps Water Management System (CWMS); and increasingly frequent emergency operations support.
