National water resources challenges facing the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers by National Research Council (U.S.)( )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) is responsible for construction, operations, and maintenance of much of the nation's water resources infrastructure. This infrastructure includes flood control levees, multi-purpose dams, locks, navigation channels, port and harbor facilities, and beach protection infrastructure. The Corps of Engineers also regulates the dredging and filling of wetlands subject to federal jurisdictions. Along with its programs for flood damage reduction and support of commercial navigation, ecosystem restoration was added as a primary Corps mission area in 1996. The National Research Council (NRC) Committee on U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Water Resources Science, Engineering, and Planning was convened by the NRC at the request of the Corps of Engineers to provide independent advice to the Corps on an array of strategic and planning issues. National water resources challenges facing the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers surveys the key water resources challenges facing the Corps, the limits of what might be expected today from the Corps, and future prospects for the agency. This report presents several findings, but no recommendations, to the Corps of Engineers based on initial investigations and discussions with Corps leadership.--

Bricks, sand, and marble : U.S. Army Corps of Engineers construction in the Mediterranean and Middle East, 1947-1991 by Robert P Grathwol( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 757 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Synopsis: The work of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in military construction in the Mediterranean Basin and the Middle East created the infrastructure that made the U.S. policies of deterrence and containment possible. This work included not only construction in support of the U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force in these areas but also work executed on behalf of Middle East allies paid for with funds they provided. This book traces the activities of American military engineers from the reconstruction that began in Greece after World War II through the construction of air bases in North Africa, the massive building program in Saudi Arabia, and support for the liberation of Kuwait in 1991. The history provides a background of the present role and position of the United States in that vital region
Building for peace : U.S. Army engineers in Europe, 1945-1991 by Robert P Grathwol( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 744 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Traces the U.S. Army's engineering construction activities in Europe, beginning immediately after World War II in 1945 and ending with the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers played a central role in building and maintaining the infrastructure in support of the U.S. and NATO forces that stood on the front lines of the Cold War. This study, covering almost a half-century of military construction in Europe that cost more than $5 billion, serves to record not only the achievements of Army engineers but also their contribution to the legacy of the peaceful triumph of democracy

Report of the exploring expedition from Santa Fé, New Mexico to the junction of the Grand and Green Rivers of the great Colorado of the West in 1859 under the command of Capt. J.N. Macomb, Corps of Topographical Engineers. With Geological report by United States( Book )

23 editions published between 1876 and 1991 in English and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the last Army expeditions in the region, this was an exploration of parts of New Mexico, Utah, and Colorado during the summer of 1859, northward out of Santa Fe along the Old Spanish Trail, to discover if there were a practical railroad or wagon route through the San Juan River country to the southern settlements of Utah Territory (in case of further armed conflicts like the "Utah War"), and on to the west coast. The report found the mountainous terrain impractical for a railroad, and the weather too severe for permanent settlement. The Civil War delayed publication
