Nature Conservancy and USACE Announce Partnership

Wednesday, July 10, 2002
The Nature Conservancy and the Army Corps of Engineers announced a collaborative effort to improve the management of dams on various rivers across the country. Under the new partnership, entitled the Sustainable Rivers Project, the two organizations will work together to improve dam operations, helping to restore and protect the health of rivers and surrounding natural areas while continuing to meet human needs for services such as flood control and power generation. The partnership is one that both organizations expect will improve the quality of America’s waterways.“At the heart of this agreement is a shared vision of restoring and protecting hundreds of river miles and thousands of acres of some of our nation’s most important natural habitats,” said Steven McCormick, president of The Nature Conservancy. “This agreement is a result of conservationists and dam managers sitting down at the table together, stating our objectives openly, and agreeing to work together to find solutions that are acceptable to all involved.”
