The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and its U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) are currently conducting R&D to operationalize technology that separates sand from mud while it’s being transported in the discharge pipeline of an operating hydraulic dredge.

The simple placement method from the past is being evaluated not only to establish separation performance metrics, but it is also being further developed to enhance sediment distribution capabilities to optimize targeted placement while dredging. The enhanced placement method will eliminate, or significantly reduce, the subsequent re-handling of the sediment and often exorbitant associated costs of that process. These improvements will be based on the two key Engineering With Nature® elements: using science and engineering to produce operational efficiencies, and using natural process to achieve maximum benefit.

Crab Bank is one of five seabird sanctuaries owned and managed by the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources to provide critical shorebird nesting habitat for black skimmer, brown pelican, and royal tern. Crab Bank is now a tiny fraction of its original size and all remaining nesting habitat was washed away in 2017 by Hurricane Irma. The restoration of Crab Bank has been a priority to many Lowcountry residents and an upcoming restoration project calls for the one-time placement of 660,000 cubic yards of compatible material, which will create about 28 available acres as habitat for nesting brown pelicans. The Corps and DNR will continue to communicate with local leaders and the Town of Mount Pleasant as the construction approaches. Learn more in this video.

Today the Wilmington District’s Emergency Management Team held a virtual Lunch and Learn for those interested in joining the Crisis Action Team (CAT). The CAT team is a group of volunteers from all over the district who gather to help when requested or tasked during a time of crisis. In the event of an emergency, the CAT team may dispatch to support the District Emergency Operations Center’s response efforts. These events could involve anything from a hurricane to a pandemic and include working with other emergency response groups. Sometimes these volunteers could deploy to other locations to support emergency missions elsewhere. As always, we are focused on District readiness to save lives and protect property! #BuildingReadiness #People #emergencypreparedness #EmergencyReadiness

In February 1865, after meeting with President Abraham Lincoln to persuade the administration to create an all-black Corps led by African American officers, Martin R. Delany was commissioned a Major in the 52nd U.S. Colored Troops Regiment. With that appointment, he became the first line officer in U.S. Army history.

The intensity and frequency of wildfires in the United States is increasing, bringing immense devastation that is compounded by a lesser-known threat. Flood risks grow exponentially after a wildfire.
A team of ERDC researchers is helping local communities reduce the risk of these destructive floods by providing high-quality models that can accurately predict these unique disasters.
On the first episode of the new Power of ERDC podcast, ERDC research physical scientist Ian Floyd discusses how he and his team are working to solve the challenges presented by post-wildfire floods.

Cyber Security tip: Avoid Using Public Wi-Fi

We all know the extent to which public Wi-Fi can be dangerous. It is essential while you’re working for your office. Let’s suppose you have a meeting in about 30 minutes and you decide to have a coffee at a nearby café. You enjoy a cup of coffee while working on your laptop that is connected to a free network. Avoid doing so because hackers are present everywhere, and they are always looking for ways to get access to your information. If you use a public network, your company’s sensitive data may become leaked. Thus, don’t use a public Wi-Fi network without a VPN. Using a trusted VPN, the traffic among your VPN server and device is strongly encrypted. It also means that it is difficult for an attacker to get access to your data. Also, explore how to use a VPN.

During extreme storms, mangroves offer a natural fortification against flooding and coastal erosion by reducing wave energy and trapping sediment. Hoping to better understand and maximize these benefits, researchers from the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) and the United States Naval Academy are collaborating to learn more about how to most effectively use mangroves to reduce coastal damage caused by waves. This will enable USACE Districts and the nation to make educated decisions and optimize designs that will better protect our coastal communities.

This innovative project is part of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Engineering with Nature initiative, which supports more sustainable water resources outcomes by intentionally aligning natural and engineering processes.

In 1851, using hydraulic dredges, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers began expanding and deepening the Charleston Harbor for the first time to a whopping 17 feet. Today, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Charleston District is deepening the harbor to 52 feet. Charleston Harbor is now one of 17 U.S. strategic ports and is a lifeline to the South Carolina economy.
