Seattle District sends emergency management expert to assist with damage assessments following South Carolina flooding
Doug Weber, Seattle District Emergency Management chief, was called to South Carolina as a subject matter expert in infrastructure assessment. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Headquarters, has been tasked to assess 652 non-federal dams to determine the extent of damages following recent flooding there. Weber is also working with the Federal Emergency Management Agency to develop a wastewater treatment facility assessment plan. There are 74 wastewater treatment plants that have reported flood damage. The Corps also completed an Unmanned Aerial System mission, which is the first time the UAS has been used by USACE for a FEMA mission. The photo shows those who have come together from across the country to support the mission in the South Carolina state-run Emergency Operations Center.
