Under Section 942 of the Water Resources Development Act of 1986, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is authorized to provide designs, contract plans, specifications, and other technical assistance for certain projects in navigable streams and tributaries. The authority covers projects involving the removal of snags and other debris; the clearing and straightening of channels; and, if cost effective, the renovation of navigable streams by nonstructural methods to improve drainage, water quality, and wildlife habitat.
The non-federal sponsor will pay 50 percent of all technical assistance costs. The sponsor will be responsible for the construction, operation, and maintenance of the project.
This service is available only to state and local governments.
