Corps of Engineers likely to shift funding towards flood recovery work
The Mississippi Valley Division continues to assess damages and prioritize repairs to the Mississippi River and Tributaries (MR&T) System in the aftermath of historic Mississippi River flooding that broke flow elevation records at many locations. The repairs will ensure the future integrity of flood control projects along the Mississippi and its major tributaries and restore function to critical project components. All of this recovery work will require significant funding.
Without supplemental funding to address the flood and navigation system repair costs, the Corps is looking at internal funding sources to reset and repair the most critical flood control projects damaged by this year’s event.
