Requests for Use of Government Property at Wilmington District Dam and Lake Projects

As stewards of the public land and water at the Civil Works multipurpose dam and lake projects in the Wilmington District, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) must carefully consider the implications and impacts of any request to use these resources.  Adverse impacts to the environment and the Congressionally authorized purposes of these Civil Works projects must be avoided. Sustaining and improving these public assets ensures that they will continue to serve the public and fulfill  their Congressionally authorized purposes. 

Items considered include:

• preserving flood storage capacity

• conserving natural resources

• protecting water quality

• producing hydropower

• supplying drinking water

• maintaining navigation

• providing sustainable, high quality, diverse, natural resource based outdoor recreation opportunities
