Climate change on the Great Lakes has coastal communities bracing for higher water

The high lake levels experienced in 2019 could be seen again, so we're working on a Great Lakes Coastal Resiliency Study to assess the threat of climate change, and how best to prepare for extreme variations in water level on everything from urban ports to wetlands.

Thanks to our hydraulic engineer Lauren Schifferle for contributing to the article!

Cities and towns on the Great Lakes need to take stock of their shoreline infrastructure to see it's vulnerable.

Flowering rush is an aquatic invasive plant species that can have adverse impacts on the ecology of an area. The Buffalo District and the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) Environmental Lab are partnering with the Cleveland Museum of Natural History and NYS Department of Environmental Conservation on a phenology study to better understand resource allocation of the flowering rush throughout the growing season to identify times when treatments will be most effective at controlling its spread and establishment in the Great Lakes. #USACE #GreatLakes #invasiveplants

Gov. DeWine comes to town to celebrate cleanup and restoration of Ashtabula River  EPA removes river from 'areas  of concern' list

We helped delist the Ashtabula Area of Concern and we're proud to have worked with many partners and stakeholders to make it happen!

“Today is a momentous occasion for the residents of Ashtabula, for Ohioans who enjoy Lake Erie, and for the larger Great Lakes region,” said Governor Mike DeWine, who played an instrumental role in the Ashtabula River clean-up process while serving in the U.S. Senate.
“The river’s removal from this list is further proof that public-private partnerships, hard work, and long-term determination are the investments needed to improve Ohio’s waters and ensure that they can be enjoyed today and for future generations.”

LaSalle Park in Buffalo was situated on a former dumping ground that was transformed into a waterfront park in the 1930s.

Now, the park is the Ralph C. Wilson Jr. Centennial Park, and our project rebuilding the seawall is being closely coordinated with the $50 million Imagine LaSalle initiative transforming the land once again.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers reports on Lake Erie's high water levels. Here's what's ahead

Keith Koralewski, chief of our water management team, said the latest six-month forecast shows Lake Erie, even in the wettest of scenarios, remaining as much as 12 inches lower than last year.

What does this mean for the future? Read below to find out!

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says Lake Erie's high water levels will drop 5 inches in August and remain lower than previous years next summer.

Last week, our team went to Ohio and collected fatmucket mussels (Lampsilis siliquoidea) from the Grand River to place in enclosures in the Cuyahoga River. Over the next 2 months the health and survival of the mussels will be monitored to better understand if habitat conditions are suitable for a larger re-introduction effort that would require rearing thousands of native mussels for eventual re-introduction into the Cuyahoga River.

The goal of this long-term project is the re-establishment of a freshwater mussel community in the lower Cuyahoga River within the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. This project is a collaborative effort with the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and the National Park Service (NPS) with both entities working to restore the Cuyahoga River and enhance the river ecosystem at CUVA and the region.
