FY 2018 Work Plan Includes $70.8M for the Corps’ Chicago District

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers recently delivered to Congress its Fiscal Year 2018 (FY 2018) work plan for the Army Civil Works program, including $70.835 million for the Chicago District.

In late March, President Trump signed into law the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2018, Public Law 115-141, of which Division D is the Energy and Water Development and Related Agencies Appropriations Act (the Act) for FY 2018.

The Act provides $6.827 billion in FY 2018 appropriations for the Army Civil Works program, of which $6.402 billion is appropriated in five accounts: Investigations; Construction; Operation and Maintenance; Mississippi River and Tributaries; and Formerly Utilized Sites Remedial Action Program (FUSRAP).

The Corps’ Chicago District received $70.835 million in funding to execute the following:

Investigations

  • Westminster – $295,000

Construction

  • Cook County, Glen Oak Acres, Country Club Hills – $1.2 million
  • McCook Reservoir – $44.352 million
  • Calumet Region – $3.5 million
  • Indiana Shoreline – $2.5 million

Operations & Maintenance

  • Calumet Harbor – $7.1 million
  • Chicago Harbor – $4.68 million
  • Burns Harbor – $4.381 million
  • Michigan City, Ind. Harbor – $2.829 million

The Army Civil Works budget funds the planning, design, construction, and operation and maintenance of water resources projects, with a focus on the highest performing work within the three main Civil Works mission areas: commercial navigation, flood and storm damage reduction, and aquatic ecosystem restoration.

It also funds programs that contribute to the protection of the nation’s waters and wetlands; the generation of low-cost renewable hydropower; the restoration of certain sites contaminated as a result of the nation’s early atomic weapons development program; and emergency preparedness and training to respond to natural disasters.
