Lt. Gen. Scott A. Spellmon, USACE Commanding General and 55th U.S. Army Chief of Engineers, has signed the Grand River Basin Chief's Report. The Grand River watershed drains 7,900 square miles in north central Missouri and southern Iowa, making it the largest Missouri watershed north of the Missouri River. The full federal project, if authorized, will increase habitat connectivity within the floodplain and benefit approximately 40,000 acres of wet prairie, emergent wetland, bottomland forest, and aquatic riverine habitats, many of which are considered the most representative of these natural systems in the Lower Grand River sub-basin. The signing of the report progresses the project to Congress for authorization. More information about this Kansas City District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers project is available here: https://go.usa.gov/x7UsD

And a press release about the signing can also be found here: https://go.usa.gov/x7dUz

Fighting in Europe related to the Great War ended on November 11, 1918, when Germany, the last remaining belligerent of the Central Powers, signed an armistice with the western allies—Britain and France. Although war had been raging there since 1914, the United States entered the conflict only in April 1917 following Germany’s renewed attack on American shipping and its anti-American overtures to Mexico.

Subsequently the U.S. sent two million troops to Europe to bolster its allies along the western front in Belgium and France and to turn the tide against the enemy. Among them were more than 240,000 engineer officers and soldiers who were given the monumental task of supporting the American Expeditionary Forces at, behind, and sometimes across the front lines.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (#USACE) will waive day use fees at its more than 2,850 USACE-operated recreation areas nationwide in observance of Veterans Day, November 11.

The waiver covers fees for boat launch ramps and swimming beaches. The waiver does not apply to camping and camping-related services, or fees for specialized facilities (group picnic shelters) and events. Other agencies that manage recreation areas on USACE lands are encouraged, but not required, to offer the waiver in the areas that they manage.

Visitors are encouraged to contact USACE lake and river projects before visiting to ensure recreation areas are open. The status of USACE-managed campgrounds, boat ramps and swimming beaches and other sites is available at https://corpslakes.erdc.dren.mil/visitors/status.cfm.

While visiting USACE recreation areas, visitors are encouraged to practice social distancing and other COVID-19 safety precautions required and recommended by local, state and federal authorities, to include the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. CDC guidance on visiting parks and recreation facilities can be found online at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/daily-life-coping/visitors.html.

USACE began the Veterans Day fee waiver in 2006 as a way to honor the men and women who have served our nation and the armed forces.

USACE is one of the leading federal providers of outdoor and water-based recreation, hosting millions of visits annually to its more than 400 lake and river projects. It’s estimated that 90 percent of the USACE-operated recreation areas are within 50 miles of metropolitan areas, offering diverse outdoor activities for all ages close to home.
