USA: Army Corps Seeks Public Input on River Training Structure Assessment

Army Corps Seeks Public Input on River Training Structure Assessment

The St. Louis District U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will host two open house events to provide background information and get public feedback on the scope of an Environmental Assessment of New River Training Structures on the Middle Mississippi River.

The two open house events in Alton, IL, and Cape Girardeau, MO, will feature a brief overview of the Corps of Engineers’ river engineering mission, and information stations on River Training Structures with subject matter experts available to answer questions and get public input on what information should be considered in the assessment.

Tuesday, Feb. 7

6pm-8pm

National Great Rivers Museum – Classroom

#2 Locks and Dam Way, Alton, IL 62002.

 Thursday, Feb. 9

6pm-8pm

Cape Girardeau Nature Center – Multipurpose room

Cape Girardeau, MO 63701.

River Training Structures are one of the ways the Corps of Engineers ensures America’s inland waterways are navigable for commerce, along with locks and dams, dredging, and revetments.

The St. Louis District is preparing an Environmental Assessment of new River Training Structures on the Middle Mississippi River (River Miles 195-0). Environmental Assessments are prepared in accord with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) to determine the environmental effects of a proposed action. The assessment will determine if there are substantial and relevant considerations or data regarding construction of new River Training Structures that the Corps has not considered to date, and if further study is needed. River construction activities will continue during the Environmental Assessment process.

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
