The Sustainable Rivers Projects is a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and The Nature Conservancy partnership. It represents an ongoing effort to reoperate Corps dams to achieve more ecologically sustainable flows, while maintaining or enhancing project benefits. The project is being carried out under a Memorandum of Understanding between the Corps and the Conservancy.
This series of articles about the Sustainable Rivers Project were published in The Corps Environment, a quarterly newsletter that provides information about Corps environmental actions, issues, policies and technologies.
