District History

Kansas City District LogoThe Kansas City District is one of 44 districts in 9 Corps of Engineers divisions which are comprised of hundreds of area, project and resident engineer offices worldwide. Our membership serves by providing comprehensive engineering, management and technical support to the Department of Defense, other federal agencies, and state and local governments. We help defend America's security - militarily, economically and environmentally.

The Kansas City District was established in 1907. Its missions include Civil Works, Military Construction, the cleanup of Hazardous, Toxic and Radiation waste. Its Civil Works boundaries take in parts of Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska, and Colorado. Its Military Construction boundaries encompass the states of Missouri and Kansas. It is the primary design district in 7 states and the secondary design district in 8 states for the Hazardous, Toxic, and Radiological Waste cleanup program, and facilitates the disposal of Naturally Occurring Radioactive Materials (non-fissionable materials) for the entire United States.

We have a diverse community of licensed professionals and certified technicians that are involved in direct project investigation and design activities as well as review and oversight of activities directly performed by Architect-Engineer firms under contract to the District.
