We joined our partners at the Coastal States Organization (CSO) to submit joint comments to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on Implementation Guidance for the Water Resources Development Act of 2020. We invite you to read those comments and are grateful for our ongoing partnership with the CSO.
The Coastal States Organization (CSO) and American Shore and Beach Preservation Association (ASBPA) were pleased to see the passage of the 2020 Water Resources Development Act (WRDA). The Act contains numerous provisions to improve the resiliency of our nation’s coastlines, including supporting better management of coastal sediment and advancing natural infrastructure that can reduce flood and coastal storm risk to coastal communities. The Act will also help the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) with its self-described efforts to “revolutionize” by requiring USACE to plan and implement water resource projects that maximize benefits across budgetary lines.
