Civil Works

The Corps of Engineers Civil Works Programs is the nation's foremost water resources program. The Civil Works Program in Seattle District has traditionally been centered on navigation and flood control. Since the Water Resources Act of 1986, Seattle District has assumed a growing role in environmental restoration. Seattle District offers many programs for helping communities, counties, tribes, and other non-federal governments. We help these organizations solve water resource problems and take advantage of opportunities.
