Title: Civil Works Program


1
Civil Works Program
  • Missions
  • Select Authorities
  • Planning Process
  • Project Phases
  • Legislative Drafting Services

2
Missions
  • HIGH PRIORITY
  • Commercial Navigation
  • Flood Damage Reduction
  • Ecosystem Restoration
  • LOW PRIORITY
  • Storm Damage Reduction
  • Water Supply
  • Hydro Power
  • Recreation

3
Select Authorities
  • Congressionally Authorized Studies/Projects
  • Great Lakes Fishery and Ecosystem Restoration
    Program
  • Continuing Authorities
  • Program

4
Congressionally Authorized Studies / Projects
  • Specifically named projects (i.e. Little Calumet
    River, Chicago Shoreline, Des Plaines River II )
  • Authorizations usually in laws (i.e. WRDA, RH
    Acts) or Resolutions from House or Senate
    Committees
  • Projects are large, usually
  • expensive and complex

5
Great Lakes Fishery and Ecosystem Restoration
Program
  • WRDA 2000, Section 506
  • Support Plan - Process
  • Projects - Plan, Design Construct
  • Evaluation Determine Success of Projects
  • Projects in Great Lakes, Great Lakes
  • Basin and the Chicago River
  • 100M program
  • 65/35 cost share

6
Continuing Authorities Program (CAP)
  • Nine Delegated Programs
  • Relatively Small Projects
  • Usually Cost Shared
  • FY 05 - 108M

7
Continuing Authorities Program What is it?
  • Program that authorizes the
  • Chief of Engineers to plan, design
  • and construct projects of limited
  • scope and complexity
  • Congress does not need to specifically authorize
    projects or provide specific project funding
  • Projects often named in appropriations bill

8
The Continuing Authorities Program Why is it
useful?
  • Start quickly Project sooner
  • Projects approved at Divisions, not HQ
  • Accelerated planning processlevel of detail is
    consistent with risk
  • Environmental authorities
  • include not-for-profits as
  • local sponsors

9
Section 14Emergency Streambank Shoreline
Erosion Protection
  • Protection for public facilities threatened by
    streambank erosion
  • 1 Million Federal limit
  • 65/35 cost-sharing
  • for costs gt 40 K
  • OMRRR - 100 local
  • FY05 - 12M

10
Section 205Small Flood Control Projects
  • Cost-share
  • Studies gt 100K are cost shared 50/50
  • Projects 35 non structural
    35-50 structural
  • OMRRR 100 local
  • 7 million Federal limit
  • FY05 - 27M

11
Section 107Small Navigation Projects
  • General navigation features including
  • breakwater, jetties, anchorage
  • and turning basins
  • 4 million Federal limit
  • Local cost-share
  • Comm.navigtion 10 - 50
  • Recreation navigation - 50
  • OMRRR 100 local
  • FY05 - 9M

12
Section 208Snagging and Clearing
  • Minor measures to reduce flooding caused by
    debris and minor shoaling
  • Total project costs
  • over 40K are
  • cost-shared - 35
  • OMRRR
  • 100 local
  • FY05 - 450K

13
Section 103Small Beach Erosion Control
  • Protect public or multiple private properties and
    facilities against damage from storms
  • 3 million Federal limit.
  • Cost sharing.
  • 65/35, except on Fed lands
  • then 100 Fed
  • OMRRR local
  • FY05 - 3M

14
Section 111Shore Damage Mitigation
  • Prevent or mitigate damages resulting from
    Federal navigation projects along shorelines.
  • Cost-shared same as project causing the problem.
  • 5 million Fed limit.
  • Limited to damage
  • caused by Fed project
  • FY05 - 1M

15
Section 204Beneficial Use of Dredged Material
  • Protection, restoration and creation of aquatic
    habitats in connection with dredging

  • Recreation features allowed
  • not to exceed Fed cost by 10
  • 65/35 cost sharing.
  • OMRRR - 100 local
  • FY05 - 25M

17
Planning Process
  • Structured approach to solving problems
  • Iterative Process
  • Interdisciplinary team
  • Can we?..Should we?
  • Planning weaves the natural,
  • social and engineering sciences
    into
    successful solutions

18
Project Phases
  • Reconnaisance Planning
  • Feasibility Planning
  • Planning Engineering
  • Design
  • Construction
  • Operation Maintenance
  • Specifically Authorized Projects 15 years
  • CAP 3-5 years

19
Legislative Language Drafting Services
  • Authorizations
  • Study Resolutions
  • Appropriations
  • Process
  • Congressional Request
  • District drafts language
  • Language submitted
  • to MSC HQ for approval
  • Approved language
