Abstract:

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers USACE is striving to design, evaluate, and manage its large-scale engineering projects in a sustainable, environmental context that extends beyond traditional project boundaries. This approach, which frames a project as part of a larger, functioning ecosystem, was articulated in The Environmental Operating Principles by the Chief of Engineers Flowers 2002 and has been adopted by the System-Wide Water Resources Program SWWRP. The goal is to promote environmental sustainability and sound stewardship by adopting an ecosystem view.
