  • Kansas City District USACE supports flood risk reduction study for Valley Creek, Alabama – now signed by the Chief of Engineers

    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Kansas City District, collaborated on a feasibility study on flood risk reduction for a creek in Alabama with the Mobile District and local leaders over the last three years. The Chief of Engineers, Lt. Gen. Scott Spellmon, signed the Chief’s Report on Friday, Oct. 29, 2021 referring the action to Congress where the project could be taken up in the next Water Resources Development Act. If approved, separate appropriations legislation would have to be passed to fund the construction of the project to benefit communities extending from Birmingham to Bessemer, Alabama via the Valley Creek Flood Risk Management Project.
