Lt. Gen. Thomas P. Bostick, U.S. Army, chief of engineers, presented Dave Robbins, Baltimore District geographer and study manager, with the 2015 Project Manager of the Year award at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers National Awards Ceremony, held at the Government Accountability Office in Washington, D.C., August 6, 2015.
Robbins was the study manager for the North Atlantic Coast Comprehensive Study, which was a two-year effort, as a result of Hurricane Sandy’s aftermath, by the Corps and its federal, state, local and non-governmental partners, to develop shared tools and potential strategies that decision makers can use to assess coastal flood risks and identify solutions to reduce those risks.
Coastal communities can start planning responsibly and taking actions now to reduce the risk of damage from future coastal storms through the use of the study’s framework.
Command Sgt. Maj. Antonio S. Jones, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, also attended the ceremony.
