Abstract : In October 1977, the Environmental and Water Quality Operational Studies (EWQOS) was initiated under the sponsorship of the Office, Chief of Engineers (OCE). The EWQOS was planned as a 6-year program of applied research to answer select, high-priority environmental quality problems associated with the Civil Works activity of the Corps of Engineers (CE). Rapid development of technology and changing priorities of research have expanded both the scope and the planned duration of the program to 8 years and a scheduled completion in fiscal year 1985. The program is managed for OCE by the Waterways Experiment Station (WES), Vicksburg, Mississippi. This paper will present the program in its present form and provide the status of the research to date.
