    Cloud-based Modeling Helps Engineers Predict Coastal Climate Impacts

    BUFFALO, N.Y. — Coastal engineers at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Buffalo District are learning how an online model can help them design and build better structures to protect harbors across lakes Erie and Ontario. With more shoreline than any other U.S. coast, infrastructure and property along the Great Lakes takes a beating from waves every year – especially in winter.

    ERDC University 2021 selectees announced

    Engineers from four U.S. Army Corps of Engineer (USACE) districts have been selected for the 2021 session of the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center University (ERDC-U). Now in its sixth year, ERDC-U pairs USACE division and district participants with relevant laboratory mentors for six-month research projects. Dana Moses, Huntington District In his current role, lead hydraulic engineer Dana Moses is involved with various aspects of dam safety risk assessments, dam safety modification studies, analysis of extreme floods and design of hydraulic structures. Moses is a professional engineer, professional hydrologist, diplomate of water resources engineering and a project management professional. He is currently pursuing a doctorate degree in civil engineering at Colorado State University. He is also currently working on guidance and tools within the dam safety program and hydrology, hydraulics, and coastal community of practices related to this subject. His ERDC-U topic of interest involves both hydraulics and geotechnics through the oversight of Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory mentor Jeremy Sharp. As Moses’ supervisor, Donald Whitmore, chief of the Hydrology and Hydraulics and Technical Support Division, said, “Mr. Moses is actively engaged in projects throughout the nation and is involved in international training and partnering related to the design of hydraulic structures and dam safety risk assessments. He was requested by USACE headquarters to deploy to California during the Oroville Dam spillway incident, and his academic background and job performance over the last 10-years are indicative of his abilities and commitment to excellence with the agency. He routinely receives the highest performance rating and continues to advance the agency in hydraulic engineering.”
  • Corps lowers impact to fish spawning near Soo Locks

    SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. (March 5, 2021) - U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) officials will use dry blasting during New Lock at the Soo construction to avoid or drastically minimize impacts to fish larvae and adult fish spawning near the Soo Locks. The Soo Locks on the St. Marys River allow vessels to navigate the 21 ft elevation change between Lake Superior and the lower Great Lakes. A new Poe-sized lock being built will provide necessary redundancy in the Great Lakes Navigation System’s critical infrastructure. To build the New Lock, deepening the channel on the upstream side (west) of the Poe lock is necessary. Dredging is scheduled to occur in 2021-2022.
