Abstract:

The Corps of Engineers operates more than 460 water resources development projects in 43 states. These projects consist of nearly 8 million acres of land and water resources that have been entrusted to Corps stewardship. About half of this acreage is permanent surface water associated with project reservoirs and river reaches. The other half is a riparian border of surrounding upland and wetland acreage that on most projects provides shoreline protection from development and other impacts.
