Over the prior century, the U.S. military Corps of Engineers has outfitted an unlimited community of water administration infrastructure that incorporates nearly seven hundred dams, 14,000 miles of levees, 12,000 miles of river navigation channels and keep watch over buildings, harbors and ports, and different amenities. traditionally, the development of latest infrastructure ruled the Corps' water assets price range and actions. this present day, nationwide water wishes and priorities more and more are transferring to operations, upkeep, and rehabilitation of latest infrastructure, a lot of which has surpassed its layout life.
However, because the mid-1980s federal investment for brand new undertaking development and significant rehabilitation has declined progressively. accordingly, a lot of the Corps' water assets infrastructure is deteriorating and donning out speedier than it really is being replaced. Corps of Engineers Water assets Infrastrucutre: Deterioration, funding, or Divestment? explores the prestige of operations, upkeep, and rehabilitation of Corps water assets infrastructure, and identifies techniques for the Corps and the country in environment upkeep and rehabilitation priorities.
