The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Galveston District, hosted a one-day Stakeholder Partnering Forum on February 22, 2017, to address USACE policy, programs, authorities and business process developments.

James Dalton, USACE director of Civil Works, provided the keynote address.

The event’s theme was “Strengthen the Foundation, Deliver the Program and Achieve the Vision,” consistent with the philosophy of Lt. Gen. Todd Semonite, USACE Chief of Engineers.

Sessions regarding the ongoing Texas coast mega study as well as navigation, flood risk management and ecosystem restoration business lines were included in the forum, USACE said.

The USACE’s Galveston District was established in 1880 as the first engineer district in Texas to oversee river and harbor improvements.

The district is directly responsible for maintaining more than 1,000 miles of channel, including 250 miles of deep draft and 750 miles of shallow draft as well as the Colorado River Locks and Brazos River Floodgates. Its main missions include navigation, ecosystem restoration, emergency management, flood risk management and regulatory oversight.
