Abstract : National environmental quality objectives continue to be an important part of the Civil Works objective of the CE (Corps of Engineers) and continuing emphasis is placed on operating projects to meet these objectives. The EWQOS program has developed information and technology to meet these national environmental objectives in a manner compatible with authorized project purposes. This technology and knowledge on how reservoir and waterway projects respond to various design and operational scenarios will allow field officer personnel to solve current environmental quality problems and to rapidly respond to emerging problems in the future. Technology transfer efforts planned or underway will insure this information is available and will provide the necessary support for full implementation of EWQOS research results in a cost-effective manner. Technology transfer activities and information gained from EWQOS research will permit the CE to continue water resource management in harmony with national environmental quality objectives.
