DELAWARE COAST PROTECTION, DE
The Delaware Coast Protection project is located in Sussex County, Delaware on the Atlantic Ocean. The project as authorized consists primarily of dunes, beachfill, and bulkheading. The $575,000 requested for FY 1986 will be used for the next beach nourishment cycle at the feeder beach north of Indian River Inlet.
VIRGINIA BEACH, VA (REIMBURSEMENT)
We have a project at Virginia Beach that provides for beach nourishment of about 3 1/3 miles of commercially developed publicly owned beach in the city of Virginia Beach on the Atlantic Ocean. Our budget request of $480,000 will be used to reimburse local interests for the Federal share of the cost of periodic nourishment.
LEHIGH RIVER BASIN, PA
We are continuing to work on the Lehigh River Basin survey. This study is directed toward determining the feasibility of developing hydroelectric power in the Lehigh River Basin. In the current year, work will continue on the Beltzville Lake project, the Penn Forest Reservoir Site Report and on detailed investigations. In FY 1986, budgeted funds of $200,000 will be used to complete Penn Forest, initiate the Environmental Impact Statement, and continue the other work ongoing in FY 1985. The study is scheduled for completion in January 1988.
OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE
Our program request of $133.2 million for Operation and Maintenance, General constitutes the major part of our Civil Works funding request. About 86% of this amount supports navigation activities. We have budgeted nine percent for flood control and five percent for general regulatory functions. Approximately $89.2 million directly supports our four major ports and $18.1 million supports activities on 19 other waterways.
To carry out our responsibilities, we have submitted a FY 1986 budget request of $162.6 million. The amount includes $3.6 million for six surveys and Phase I studies; $8.0 million for ten Continuation of Planning and Engineering Projects; $2.0 million for three Advance Engineering and Design Projects; $15.8 million for ten construction projects; and $133.2 million for Operation and Maintenance that provides maintenance work on 37 channel and harbor projects, and operational requirements for 20 flood control projects.
Our Civil Works annual workload includes mobilization planning to meet natural disasters or national emergencies, as well as work under the Corps' continuing authorities that engages us in:
- designing and constructing small projects not specifically
