Abstract: The federal government and the Corps of Engineers (CE) are committed to preserving and enhancing environmental quality. Research and development support for this commitment in the realm of river engineering was provided by the CE Environmental Water Quality Operational Studies (EWQOS) Research Program, during the early 1980's. Related research continues at the Waterways Experiment Station's Environmental Laboratory (EL). This paper presents an overview of some of these efforts and associated end products developed for use by river engineers. Subjects covered include studies of cutoff meander bends, vegetation on levees, grade control structures, river training dikes, wetlands, software development, and others.
