The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, in cooperation with the Lower Brule Sioux Tribe, will hold an open house on Thursday, April 26, from 5 to 7p.m. at the Oacoma Community Center in Oacoma, South Dakota.

During the meeting, aimed to seek comments on potential opportunities to address erosion that is threatening the town of Lower Brule, there will be a brief, formal presentation at 5:30 p.m.

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.

The open house was originally scheduled for Tuesday, April 3.
