Abstract

As part of its water resources mission, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) plans, designs, constructs and operates a variety of water resource projects. Projects include multipurpose storage reservoirs, navigation dams and locks, and levee and bypass systems with closure and diversion structures. More than 700 reservoir and water control structures located throughout the U. S. are operated by USACE. In addition, emergency operations often include reinforcing or temporarily raising levees, sandbagging efforts, and evacuation during flooding. The Corps Water Management System (CWMS) is the new generation decision-support system that enables execution of the USACE water control management mission. This paper provides an overview of CWMS development, describes its capabilities, and briefly discusses implementation requirements.
