    2018

  • Quick Reference to Climate Considerations
    This quick reference guidance addressed three relevant climate factors to achieve expedient climate risk-informed decision-making: datums, sea level change, and climate-impacted hydrology. This quick reference synthesizes but does not supplant or replace existing policy and guidance.

  • Corps Planning: Feasibility Studies & Project Delivery
    The Corps' Civil Works Planning Program conducts a broad range of studies, including studies leading to new projects that require Congressional authorization, studies involving evaluation and design of projects under continuing authorities, and reexaminations of existing projects.
  • Corps Planning: Floodplain Management Services
    Through the Floodplain Management Services (FPMS) program, the Corps provides information on flood hazards to local interests, state agencies, and other federal agencies to guide development of the floodplains of the rivers of the United States.
  • Corps Planning: Planning Assistance to States
    Two types of planning assistance are offered through the Planning Assistance to States (PAS) program, Comprehensive Plans and Technical Assistance. Any State, or group of States, may partner with the Corps under the PAS program. Federally-recognized Tribes and U.S. Territories are also eligible partners in the PAS program. The PAS program is authorized by Section 22 of WRDA 1974, as amended, and is sometimes referred to as the “Section 22” program.
  • Corps Planning: Planning SMART, Building Strong
    Planning plays a vital role in supporting the Corps Civil Works water resources development and management mission. The Corps' water resources planners help decision-makers identify water resources problems, conceive solutions to them and compare the importance of the inevitable conflicting values inherent in any solution. Planning knowledge and skill is used across Civil Works mission areas and throughout the Civil Works project development and implementation process – not just in the early "planning" phases of project development. This fact sheet provides an overview of the various activities of USACE Civil Works Planning.
  • Corps Planning: Risk-Informed Planning
    USACE Civil Works Planning has always been about solving problems and making decisions under uncertainty. With today's complex challenges and limited resources we must be more efficient and effective in how we conduct planning studies. By placing the six-step planning process in a risk management framework, USACE Planning teams are better able to identify and communicate the way they use information and reduce uncertainty to inform decisions through iterations of the risk-informed planning process.
  • Partnering with the Corps: Assistance to States, Tribes & Communities
    The Corps' Civil Works Planning Program works with State, Tribal, and local governments to provide or coordinate technical assistance and engineering expertise through a variety of programs.
