Abstract : Over the past quarter century considerable criticism has been directed at the Army Corps of Engineers by the media, educators, some members of Congress and environmentalists for allegedly excluding the public from its decision process. This, critics note, has resulted in Corps bias towards dams and structural solutions and a neglect of relevant social issue. All aspects of these criticisms were examined. The report recommends that the Corps of Engineers take action to bring all operating elements to the same level of performance and that the Corps undertake a vigorous program to further educate and involve the public in its activities.
