Abstract:

In 1978 GAO reported that it took, on the average, 25.9 years for the Army Corps of Engineers to plan and design flood control projects. GAOs current review of 18 flood control projects, 16 navigation projects, and 1 multipurpose project entering the construction phase in 1978-83 showed that it took, on the average, 29.4 years, 21.6 years, and 35.4 years, respectively, to plan and design these projects. The average for all 35 projects was 26.1 years. This report discusses several congressional and administrative initiatives that could reduce the time it takes to plan and design the Corps water resources projects.
