The Omaha District’s Lower Yellowstone irrigation project in south eastern Montana is on budget and on schedule at approximately 85 percent completion. This civil works construction project began in early 2019 after the Bureau of Reclamation reached out to the District to replace an existing, outdated diversion dam.
Members of the public watch salmon runs in the newly renovated fish ladder viewing room at the Ballard Locks. Two non-profit organizations, The Corps Foundation and Discover Your Northwest, pooled resources and raised around $1.2 million – the largest challenge partnership donation in USACE’s history – toward the renovation project.
The Essayons travelled north to the Corps’ Alaska District, to dredge the Cook Inlet Navigation Channel. A sudden surge of shoal material in the past two years reduced depths and affected navigation in the channel, which is the only Coast Guard marked route for all cargo and fuel ships supplying the Port of Anchorage.
