A shoreline erosion feasibility study open house, organized by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at the Oacoma Community Center, has been cancelled due to inclement weather in South Dakota.

The public meeting will be rescheduled for a date in the near future, said USACE.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate alternatives for shoreline protection to reduce the continued loss of land which is threatening the town of Lower Brule’s sewage lagoons, roadways and other infrastructure.

This feasibility study is being conducted under authority of Section 203 of the Water Resources Development Act of 2000, as amended, also known as the Tribal Partnership Program.

The Tribal Partnership Program is an authority through which the Secretary of Army (acting through the Chief of Engineers) can carry out planning, design, and construction of water resource projects that substantially benefit federally-recognized Indian Tribes.

Projects can include flood risk management, environmental restoration and protection, preservation of cultural and natural resources, watershed planning and other technical assistance.
