Los Angeles District Army Corps of Engineers

The Continental Congress established the U.S. Corps and position of Chief Engineer on June 16, 1776. It became part of the army in 1799, and was charged with operating the U.S. Military Academy. West Point became the nation's only engineering school, building early roads and harbors. Today Corps duties include flood control, hydropower production, water supply, shoreline restoration and protection, coastal and inland waterway dredging, wildlife management and recreation. Corps projects now host more than 500 million recreational visitors a year. The Corps environmental mission is to manage wildlife and plant habitats at its project sites.

The Los Angeles District of the Army Corps of Engineers has developed the Los Angeles County Drainage Area (LACDA). Through a system of dams along the Los Angeles, San Gabriel and Santa Ana Rivers and the Rio Hondo, flood control is provided for the LA basin, and for parts of neighboring San Bernardino, Riverside and Orange counties. With the help of local agencies, these dams furnish open space for recreation and wildlife as well as flood protection. The District's Operations Branch oversees flood control, habitat management and recreation on nearly 30,000 acres of riparian and upland habitat in parts of three Western States.

Army Resources Program

The Department of Defense manages more than 25 million acres worldwide. Much of this land is located in sensitive wetlands and along rivers, some of the most ecologically significant areas in the world. Location of these real estate holdings makes it imperative that the various military missions are planned and executed in harmony with the environment. DoD supports numerous partnerships with other Federal, State, local and private resource groups to promote such programs as the North American Waterfowl Management Plan, Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation, Wetlands Protection and Enhancement, and Watchable Wildlife. To succeed in its mission, and to earn public confidence, DoD must emphasize natural resources stewardship in every aspect of its land use. It does. Come see for yourself and discover our resources.


The Army and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation are cooperating on an international program to promote conservation of neotropical migratory birds. For information, call DoD at (703) 604-1773 or NFWF at (202) 857-0166.
