  • Tar Pamlico Basin Flood Risk-Management Study

    In response to recent flooding that occurred as a result of Hurricanes Matthew (2016) and Florence (2019), the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers received funding through the 2019 Additional Supplemental Appropriations for Disaster Relief (H.R. 2157) for a feasibility study to assess and recommend actions that reduce flood risk and increase resiliency within the Tar-Pamlico River Basin. A series of flood risk management alternatives designed to reduce flood risks within the basin through various combinations of structural (e.g., floodwalls, levees, detention basins), non-structural (e.g., acquisition and relocation, home elevation), and natural and nature-based measures (e.g., wetland and floodplain storage) were developed and compared with the goal of identifying and recommending an alternative that reduces flood risk while protecting environmental resources.

  • Upper Ohio River Navigation Project

    The Upper Ohio Navigation Project is part of the National Economic Development (NED) plan for improving the upper Ohio River navigation system, specifically the Emsworth, Dashields and Montgomery locks and dams. Emsworth, Dashields and Montgomery, each constructed prior to 1936, are the first three locks and dams on the Ohio River downstream of the Point of Pittsburgh. These facilities have the oldest and smallest lock chambers in the entire Ohio River Navigation System. The project replaces each auxiliary lock chamber (56’ wide by 360’ long) with a new lock chamber (110’ by 600’) at each facility. This new lock chamber would serve as the new main lock chamber. The fully-funded, total project cost for all three new chambers is $2.1 billion, which would be cost-shared jointly by the General Fund (65%) and the Inland Waterways Trust Fund (35%) (2021 Cost Level). The project’s incremental benefit-to-cost ratio is 2.4 to 1 (at the current discount rate of 2.75%).
