FY15: USD 49.5 M for Wilmington District (USA)

U.S. President Obama’s budget proposal for fiscal year 2015 (FY15) includes funding for ongoing projects in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Wilmington District.

The $48.9 million operation and maintenance budget continues work at the harbors: Wilmington, $14.1 million; Morehead City, $4.8 million; and other shallow draft harbors and channels including Manteo (Shallowbag) Bay (Oregon Inlet) and the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway.

The District’s five lakes and dams are included in the budget with John H. Kerr Dam and Reservoir in N.C. and Va. (Buggs Island) receiving $10.7 million, Philpott Lake, Va., $6.4 million, W. Kerr Scott Dam and Reservoir, N.C., $3.3 million, B. Everett Jordan Dam and Lake, N.C., $1.8 million, and Falls Lake, N.C., $1.9 million.
