Hero of the Month

Joseph Chun is being featured as our Hero of the Month for his outstanding support of the Government Purchase Card Program in the Galveston District. 

In addition to his duties as the Primary Agency/Organization Program Coordinator for the Galveston District, he is heavily relied upon for his management of 35 separate accounts. Chun is also known for volunteering to support other Districts across the Southwestern Division and recently volunteered to backfill the A/OPC position for the Fort Worth District.  He is highly sought after for his technical expertise and professional support to the Division. 

La Poncer Randall-Allen, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Government Purchase Card Program  A/OPC-Level 3 personally recommended Chun oversee all 140 accounts at the Fort Worth District and when approached with the expanded assignment, he rose to the challenge.

Chun’s effective and personable management style has helped Galveston and Fort Worth Districts realign their entire GPC program in order to comply with USACE operating guidelines. His efforts and leadership extend to the personalized one-on-one, on-the-job training he provides across the Division.

Finally, we’d like to recognize Chun’s recent in-house inspection efforts of SWF’s GPC program which proved highly effective in informing the Fort Worth leadership on existing and new GPC guidelines and policies. Congratulations to our hero of the month, Joseph Chun.

Little Rock District hosts Media Day at Arkansas levees 

Local, state and Federal officials recently attended a Media Day at the Faulkner and Perry County Levees in Conway, Ark., hosted by the Little Rock District to update the public on the status of rehabilitation work on the Faulkner County Levee and announce work has begun on the Perry County Levee.

The historic 2019 Arkansas River flood impacted hundreds of communities in Arkansas and Oklahoma. The Faulkner County levee, also known as the Lollie Levee, sustained a near breach with an approximately 200-foot-long eroded section creating a reduced level of protection to the leveed area. Permanent repairs are currently underway, with construction scheduled to be substantially complete this spring and fully complete this summer.

The entire Perry County levee system was overtopped, and the levee was breached or damaged in at least 19 locations. Repair work is underway and expected to be completed by summer 2021. To date, four of the levees in the Rehabilitation and Inspection Program have had repairs initiated or substantially completed.
