The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has submitted to Congress its work plan for several projects under its Civil Works program.

Approximately $4.5B in appropriations will go to USACE’s five accounts: the Formerly Utilized Sites Remedial Action Program; construction; investigations; operation and maintenance; and Mississippi River and tributaries.

USACE will allocate approximately $2.1B in funds to navigation projects, flood risk management programs, other authorized project purposes and FUSRAP.
