The overall mission of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is to provide services to the Army and to the Nation. The Detroit District is a Civil Works District with a Mission and Vision dedicated to providing quality and responsive service to the nation in peace and war. The Directorate of Civil Works is a major component of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Civil Works business lines include Emergency Management (EM), Environment (EN), Flood Risk Management (FRM), Hydropower (H), Navigation (N), Recreation (RC), Regulatory (RG), and Water Supply (WS). Under the Civil Works Program, the Detroit District plans, builds, operates, and maintains a wide range of water resource facilities. The District’s long-standing civil responsibilities are creating and maintaining federal navigable harbors and channels, reducing flood risk and storm damage, aquatic ecosystem restoration and environmental protection. Other District responsibilities include flood emergency and natural disaster response, such as flood-fighting, repair to damaged levees, and emergency water supply assistance.
Our District is always willing to address a customer, stakeholder or partner with answers to their issues. This Web-page is intended to help you learn how the Corps of Engineers can help your community or local government plan, design, and construct water resources projects.
