Barrow, Alaska Coastal Erosion Section 116 Feasibility Report and Environmental Assessment Director's Report (2019)
Recommendation of a non-NED plan based on a Cost Effective/Incremental Cost Analysis (CE/ICA), which was based on a "community resilience unit" (CRU) metric and which measured relative changes in various economic, social/cultural, and environmental metrics. This alternative plan would reduce flooding and erosion impacts across all six reaches in the entire five mile study area, and address not only potential economic impacts in the project area under a future without project condition, but address additional cultural and environmental impacts as well. The study was conducted based on authorization under Section 116 of the Energy and Water Development and Related Agencies Appropriations Act (EWDRAAA) of 2010.
Kenai Bluffs Bank Stabilization Section 116 Feasibility Study, Final Integrated Feasibility Report and Environmental Assessment (FIFREA) Director's Report (2019)
Recommendation of a National Economic Development (NED) plan, which consists of constructing an armor-stoned berm as a line of protection along approximately 5,000 lineal feet of receding coastal bluff on the western coast of the Kenai Peninsula, based on authorization under Section 116 of the Energy and Water Development and Related Agencies Appropriations Act (EWDRAAA) of 2010.
Lowell Creek Flood Diversion Feasibility Study, Integrated Feasibility Report and Environmental Assessment (2021)

The report was prepared pursuant to the Flood Control Act of 1966, Section 203, Public Law 89-789. The purpose of this project is to increase the level of flood protection being provided by the flood risk management project completed in 1949 by USACE pursuant to Section 10 of the Flood Control Act of 1944, Public Law 78-534.
San Luis Rey Flood Control Project, San Diego County, California, Post-Authorization Change Report (2020)
This Post-Authorization Change Report presents a revised cost estimate and updated economic analysis of the San Luis Rey Flood Control Project, San Diego County, California project authorized project in order to request authorization of a new project cost.
