WRDA expedites & expands scope of disposition study

Congress enacted the 2018 Water Resources Development Act, Section 1225, directing the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to expedite a study looking exclusively at the Upper Lock and to expand the scope of the study to include consideration of partial disposition. The Lower Lock and Lock 1 will presumably be studied at a later date. The revised and expedited Upper Lock study kicked off in August 2019.
