On Wednesday, August 13, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will host a call-in and on-line listening session regarding its implementation of the recently-passed Water Resources Reform and Development Act (WRRDA). Signed into law on June 10, 2014, WRRDA reauthorized and amended the Water Resources Development Act (WRDA), and authorizes flood control, navigation, and environmental projects and studies by the Army Corps of Engineers.

The August 13 session (the first of four planned) will address Deauthorizations and Backlog Prevention, and Project Development and Delivery. Here are the detailed agendas for the four listening sessions, which will each cover different WRRDA implementation topics. As detailed in a related July 29, Federal Register notice, the Army Corps intends to provide an opportunity for public comment on the matter during each of the listening sessions, and is also providing an opportunity to submit written comments outside of the sessions. Call-in and Internet log-in information for Wednesday’s session, and each of the subsequent sessions (on August 27, and September 10 and 24), can be found here.
