Abstract: In the United States, construction of public works to develop water resources is the responsibility of the Army Corps of Engineers. These works include projects to improve ocean and coastal navigation, protect and restore eroding shores, and protect coastal areas against storm-induced flooding. To date the Corps has been involved in hundreds of harbor and navigation projects, beach and shore protection projects, and coastal flood protection projects on every coast. The Corps established the Monitoring Completed Coastal Projects (MCCP) Program, a national program to assure comprehensive, systematic monitoring of coastal projects.
