Abstract : The Omaha District (District) of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) is implementing a Water Quality Management Program (WQMP) as part of the operation and maintenance activities associated with managing the Corps civil works projects in the District. The WQMP addresses surface water quality management issues and adheres to the guidance and requirements specified in the Corps Engineering Regulation ER 1110-2-8154, Water Quality and Environmental Management for Corps Civil Works Projects (USACE, 1995). A periodic report of water quality conditions in the Missouri River Mainstem System (Mainstem System) is prepared to document and assess water quality conditions occurring at the Corps Mainstem System projects in the District. The report describes existing water quality conditions and identifies any evident surface water quality management concerns. The annual reporting of Mainstem System project water quality conditions is done to facilitate water quality management decisions regarding the operation and regulation of the Mainstem System projects.
