SWD Commander’s Vision Infographic
SWD is a HIGH PERFORMING ORGANIZATION that reliably delivers QUALITY engineering products and services.
The Mississippi River Commission was created by an Act of Congress on June 28, 1879, to plan and provide for the general improvement of the entire length of the Mississippi River. The commission studies and reports on modifications or changes made to the Mississippi River and Tributaries project, a project that delivers dependable navigation and flood risk management to the Mississippi River valley. Since 1928, the project has prevented more than $800 billion in flood damages, or $54 for every dollar invested, and is critical to the nation’s global economic prosperity, energy security, and arguably, the American way of life. The project reduces the risk of inundation and financial instability for a population of more than 4.5 million people; numerous power plants, oil refineries, oil and gas wells, and natural gas transmission pipelines; an agricultural industry consisting of 22.5 million acres of cropland valued at $51 billion; and manufacturing facilities that generate $106 billion in revenues and employ 207,000 workers.
