On June 8-9, 2022, COL. Kenneth Reed, and the Southwestern Division leadership hosted a hybrid in-person and virtual Civil Works Strategic Plan Workshop in Dallas, Texas. This workshop brought together leaders from HQ USACE, SWD and all its districts, and state representatives from Texas, Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Kansas, for the first regional meeting of its kind. Mr. Alvin Lee, USACE Director of Civil Works, provided opening remarks, and presentations from each of the five states helped paint a picture of current water use and future infrastructure needs across the region. The workshop is anticipated to kick off several more conversations highlighting the implementation of the Plan to promote Integrated Water Resources Management best practices for a sustainable regional water future.
Following the Workshop, the Workshop Synthesis was developed to summarize and synthesize the outcomes of that workshop.
The Strategic Response Plan was also developed to advance the implementation of the Civil Works Strategic Plan.
