#ThrowbackThursday
We don't just fight floods, build harbors, or clean up from hurricanes. As the clouds of World War II darkened in the late 1930s and into 1940, the U.S. realized it needed to enhance its military and industrial capacity. Into the breach stepped the Buffalo District. Click each photo to learn more!

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Buffalo District contractor Ryba Marine Construction Co. dredged 55,000 cubic yards of dredged material from the Upper Cuyahoga River/Cleveland Harbor this Fall.

Subject to the availability of funds, Cleveland Harbor is dredged twice every year, once in the spring and once in the fall. Natural sedimentation within the federal channel from upstream erosion is the main need for dredging.

Millions of cubic yards of sediment must be dredged from U.S. ports, harbors, and waterways each year to maintain and improve the Nation's navigation system for commercial vessels, national defense, and recreational purposes.

A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held Monday at 1 pm for the completion of the Athol Springs' shoreline revetment in Hamburg, NY.

“The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is taking bold actions today that will improve project delivery tomorrow and accelerate infrastructure delivery. Because of the strong partnership with New York State Department of Transportation, and full federal funding secured by our elected officials, the Corps of Engineers was able to deliver the Athol Springs project ahead of schedule and under budget. Now 40,000 motorists daily will drive easier knowing that they can safely pass along the Lake Erie shoreline, said Maj. Patrick Billmann, USACE Buffalo District Deputy Commander. “Accelerated project delivery is a testament to the technical capabilities of project team members: Christine Cardus Weston Cross, Mitchell Hares, Austin Nilsen, Tim Noon, Laura Ortiz, Brian Steils, and Tori Towndrow. They have been instrumental in delivering the new revetment before Lake Erie’s harsh winters arrive.

Ohio & Erie Canal Aquatic Nuisance Species Barrier Project Complete

The Ohio & Erie canal project is COMPLETE and is CRITICAL to protecting the Great Lakes from aquatic invaders. Great Lakes Restoration Initiative funding provided by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency made this work possible.

A five-mile stretch along the Ohio & Erie Canal towpath near Akron, Ohio was one of these areas that had a moderate likelihood for transfer. Completion of construction in May 2020 has resulted in the installation of barrier measures at 14 individual locations to reduce the likelihood of movement bet...

Buffalo confined disposal facility 4 repairs are COMPLETE!

The Buffalo CDF 4 is located at the south end of Buffalo Harbor and was constructed in 1977 by building a stone perimeter dike in order to contain dredged material. Since the CDF was built, decades of storm wave action and freeze/thaw cycling have deteriorated and shifted the large stones on the dike crest. This repair project will ensure the CDF continues to function as originally designed.
