Mississippi Valley Division (US Army Corps of Engineers)

Mississippi Valley Division (US Army Corps of Engineers) This is the official website for the US Army Corps of Engineers, Mississippi Valley Division.
(20)

The Division is directly responsible to the Chief of Engineers in Washington. The MVD directs & supervises the District Commanders of the U.S. Army Engineer Districts, St. Paul, Rock Island, St. Louis, Memphis, Vicksburg and New Orleans.

Mission: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Civil Works mission is varied and wide-ranging. Its multi-purpose projects provide benefits for navigation, flood risk management, hydropower production, fish and wildlife, environmental stewardship, recreation, irrigation and municipal water supply. • Navigation - The Mississippi Valley Division’s navigation responsibilities include planning and constructing navigation channels, locks and dams, and dredging to maintain channel depths of the harbors and inland waterways within its 370,000-square-mile boundary. The division operates and maintains 4,200+ miles of navigable channels, 59 locks, 51 shallow-draft ports and seven deep-draft ports. In partnership with local port authorities, MVD personnel oversee dredging and construction projects at numerous ports and harbors. • Flood Risk Management - Reducing risk and preventing flood-related damages can be accomplished by several means — through structural measures, such as reservoirs, levees, channels, and floodwalls that modify the characteristics of floods; or with non-structural measures, such as flood plain evacuation, floodproofing, and floodway acquisitions that alter the way people use these areas and reduce the susceptibility of human activities to flood risk. • Hydropower - Because of hydropower’s significant advantages over other energy sources — clean, efficient, reliable, and renewable — it plays an increasingly important role in meeting the Nation's energy needs. • Environmental - Since the 1970s, the Corps’ environmental efforts have grown and evolved from simply protecting fish, wildlife and plant species to a focus on recovering their numbers to become sustainable. The Corps partners with state and federal agencies to expand the scientific knowledge base of the natural environment and evaluate how activities within a watershed may affect protected species. Structural modifications to dams and powerhouses along with changes to river system operations are used to ensure the right things are done for the environment. • Recreation - The Corps is one of the federal government’s largest providers of outdoor recreational opportunities. The Mississippi Valley Division operates more than 400 recreational sites at its lakes and projects, logging more than 54 million visitors per year and bringing more than $3 billion cumulative value to local economies. The division has 9,500+ camp sites, 33 lakes and 14 visitor centers. Educational and volunteer programs help visitors appreciate the need for conscientious environmental stewardship of the 2 million acres of land and water in our jurisdiction. • Regulatory Program - The mission of the Corps’ regulatory program is to protect the Nation's waters for current and future generations, while allowing for reasonable economic development. Regulatory efforts protect a wide variety of aquatic resources, including wetlands, rivers, streams, tidal waters, coral reefs, shellfish beds, and the oceans. Our permit process is designed to minimize environmental impacts of construction and dredging activities in U.S. waters and to ensure that such efforts are thoughtful and coordinated. • Engineering and Construction - The Engineering and Construction Division (E&C) provides engineering and architectural analysis, designs and services for the construction, operations, maintenance and remediation of a wide range of water resource, infrastructure and military projects to our customers, partners and stakeholders. The E&C Division is also responsible for all construction program requirements, including contract administration, quality assurance, construction management and technical services. • Mississippi River Science and Technology - By leveraging the expertise in the six Mississippi River Districts and the Engineer Research and Development Center, the Mississippi Valley Division seeks to serve as a "focal point" and coordination center for the science and knowledge transfer associated with the Mississippi River, including topics such as sediment transport and potamology, and linkages with stream ecology. Current investigations include coordinating sediment transport field investigations and modeling efforts and supporting pallid sturgeon assessments in the lower river.

US Army Corps of Engineers, New Orleans District

The Mississippi River has risen to 15 feet at the Carrollton Gage prompting the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New Orleans District to reactivate phase II flood fight procedures.
Closely coordinating efforts with the local levee authorities, the New Orleans District will begin daily patrolling of levees along the Mississippi River from Baton Rouge to Venice. Increased patrols help ensure our ability to respond quickly to any problem areas that may develop along the levee system because of the elevated water levels.

Mississippi Valley Division Commanding General, Maj. Gen. R . Mark Toy visited the Bayou Meto and Grand Prairie Groundwater Security Projects in Arkansas on Feb. 19. Approximately 1.2 million acres of land in this area is dedicated to growing rice. This represents 57 percent of America's total annual rice production. But, decades of irrigation have seriously deleted the two underground aquifers that have supported the rice crop. Both projects will provide comprehensive water management plans designed to reduce groundwater depletion thereby protecting and preserving the Alluvial and Sparta aquifers. During his visits to the two projects Maj. Gen. Toy met with the Corps' partners, traveled to constrrucntion sites, and received comprehensive briefings on construction progress and the way ahead.

Vicksburg District - USACE

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Vicksburg District provided an update Feb. 13:

The U.S. National Weather Service (NWS) has forecasted one-to-two inches of rain across most of the Lower Mississippi River Valley over the next seven days. Over past 24 hours, parts of the Yazoo and Pearl River basins have received two-to-three inches of rain.

The Mississippi River is expected to crest at Arkansas City, Arkansas, at 39.5 feet Feb. 25; Greenville, Mississippi, at 50.5 feet Feb. 26; Vicksburg, Mississippi, at 46.5 feet Feb. 28; and Natchez, Mississippi, at 54 feet Feb. 29. These projections are based on two days of forecasted rainfall and will changed based on future rainfall.

Based on current forecasts, the Yazoo Backwater is expected to reach 93-94 feet by late February. The gates of the Steele Bayou Control Structure, located approximately 10 miles north of Vicksburg, are expected to remain open for the near future, and a gate closure date will be strictly determined on future rainfall. However, this prediction may change based on future rainfall.

Because of increased rainfall, the flood control structures at Sardis, Enid and Grenada lakes in north Mississippi were closed Feb. 10. These Yazoo Basin reservoirs have 40-75% flood capacity available and are expected to have 30-50% capacity remaining after each reservoir peaks. The reservoirs are not expected to reach spillway based on current forecasted rainfall.

The National Weather Service forecasted that the Pearl River at Jackson, Mississippi, will crest at 38 feet Feb. 16. That crest will be the third-highest flood event on record. This crest is based on two days of forecasted rainfall and may change based on future rainfall.

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Vicksburg District engineers and technical experts continue to monitor water levels and flood control works across the region; work with our local, state and federal partners; and provide updates as they become available.

Floodgates to open wider at som dam?
When will the Bayou Cocodrie at Deer Park river gauge be available again? Thanks
Unclassified for common sense purpses and to save lives and property. USACE doesn't know how to reward innovation,, part of the reason I left. A repeat of the 2016 flood in Baton Rouge can be avoided by using the current topography of the newly proposed upstream reservoir and just flash vaporize the floodwater. The US Army Corps of Engineers is a subcomponent of the US Army and DOD, start acting like it and save some freaking lives, and not to mention a lot of money while implementing some kick ass technology. Also worth noting is NASA'S soil moisture active passive satellite program or SMAP. (If it's still operational) It would help identify and locate large seepage problem areas on a large scale in the Mississippi River Valley ( seeing as how ground/seepage water maintains a constant temperature of 68.8° F and would add and additional level of eyes in the sky for the guys on the ground that are eyeballing problem areas, especially if the imagery is overlaid onto existing base maps for their sectors. Not to mention identifying potential changes in the rivers course* such as Allendale Bend in Wear Baton Rouge Parish. We are the United States of America, we can do anything. This is small potatoes for us. Free food for thought. Enjoy and Happy New Year.
