Sediment & Ecosystem Management


Sustainable development and maintenance of water resources infrastructure require solutions that beneficially integrate engineering and natural systems, and then consider the results within a regional or systems context. Success in identifying and implementing the best solutions requires communication and collaboration with other Federal and State agencies as well as with stakeholders and partners.

Two representative USACE initiatives—Engineering With Nature (EWN) and Regional Sediment Management (RSM)— provide the bases to work collaboratively to identify and implement such solutions while other USACE resources, such as a database of sediment samples and Sediment Analysis tools, provide additional data to support the results.
