Technology meeting set

Makes Statement

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announces a meeting with the aim of finding an appropriate set of technological solutions to protect the coastal ecosystems of the Gulf of Mexico that is under pressure both by the concentration of ship traffic and the forces of nature (storm damage).

It’s imperative that we strike a balance between industrial expansion and the health of our ecosystem, working to ensure it can withstand and recover from future disasters, while identifying research and development needs to enable the Corps to deliver innovative solutions to meet these challenges and opportunities. The key for us is understanding and planning for sustainable community resiliency, risk reduction to life and property, and ecosystem restoration at integrated systems scale across multiple water resources management objectives, driven by our partners and stakeholders.
