Civil Works Multi-purpose Reservoir Infrastructure Strategy & Future Opportunities

  1. 1. US Army Corps of Engineers BUILDING STRONG® Civil Works Multi-purpose Reservoir Infrastructure Strategy & Future Opportunities Robert Slockbower Programs Director Southwestern Division 12 June 2014
  2. 2. BUILDING STRONG® Moonshine Beach, Table Rock Lake, Mo. Regulators examine soils on a wetland delineation field visit. Dallas Floodway Bull Shoals Powerhouse, Arkansas Houston Ship Channel Sardis Dam, Oklahoma Navigation (Ports and Channels) •3 of the Nation’s “Top Ten” ports •32 channels (15 deep draft, 17 shallow draft) •More than 500 M tons of commerce annually Navigation (Inland) 2 major waterways (GIWW and MKARNS) Hydroelectric Power •18 power plants in 6 states produce 6.7 billion kw hours •87% of regional capacity, third in the Corps Water Supply •9.3 million acre-feet of water storage •Water control contracts = water for 1.8 million households Regulatory (work in waters & wetlands) •Over 5000 permit decisions annually •Protection of waters & wetlands Recreation •20 percent of the Corps' total recreation projects located within the regional boundary •83 million visitors at 90 operating projects located in five states Flood Damage Reduction •74 flood damage reduction lakes/reservoirs •33.22M acre-feet of flood storage •760 miles of local flood protection projects •$85 B in cumulative flood damage prevention Little Rock District's MV Ted Cook positions the Crane Barge Mike Hendricks at Dam 2 during the flood of 2011 2
  3. 3. BUILDING STRONG® Water Supply 9.3 Million Acre-Feet of Storage for Municipal, Industrial or Agricultural Use - 36% of potable water for Texas - 35% of potable water for Oklahoma - 50% of potable water for Kansas 3
  4. 4. BUILDING STRONG® Multi-Purpose Reservoir and Water Infrastructure Sustain • Major and Routine Maintenance • Long-range Maintenance Plans (3-5 years) • Planning Prioritization of Available Funds (Budgets) Enable • State Water Planning • Regulatory • Public Private Partnerships • Policy/Legislation Modify • Project Operations / Drought Contingency Planning • Assessment of Surplus Water Storage • M&I Reallocations to meet Current Needs • Major Rehabilitation Means Ways End TWCA TWDB TRISTATE REGIONS Sustainable infrastructure and be relevant to water supply in Texas. Communication Transparency 4
  5. 5. BUILDING STRONG® Corps Water Supply AUTHORITIES • Project specific authorities • War Department Civil Appropriations Act of 1938-- Contributions by Locals (33 USC 701h) • Independent Offices Appropriations Act, 31 USC 9701, use discontinued • 1944 Flood Control Act, Section 6 & 8 • 1958 Water Supply Act • Emergency Authority, PL 84-99, as amended
  6. 6. BUILDING STRONG®6 Status of Texas Drought
  7. 7. BUILDING STRONG®7 Texas Reservoirs
  8. 8. BUILDING STRONG®8
  9. 9. BUILDING STRONG® Drought Continuum 9 PLANNING • State Water Planning • Reallocation Studies • New Infrastructure PREPAREDNESS • Drought Exercises • Maintain Existing Infrastructure • Update Water Control Manuals • Drought Contingency Plans RESPONSE/RECOVERY • PL 84-99 Assistance • Conservation • Strategic Communications

  15. 15. BUILDING STRONG® Drivers for Change USACE CW Program is not funded to maintain current levels of service!  Unreliable Resource Engines  Increasing M needs and O&M Costs  Inability to Rehabilitate  Aging capital stock portfolio  Declining performance across all business lines  Increasing National demand and competition for water & water resources 15
