SEPTEMBER PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT: The Section 408 Program at the Saint Paul District

Presentation Synopsis:

The United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Section 408 policy sets forth the process and criteria USACE uses to review requests to alter USACE Civil Works projects. The purpose of the Section 408 review is to ensure that the benefits of a USACE project are not undermined by an alteration and to ensure the alteration is not injurious to the public interest. In the fall of 2018, USACE issued new guidance regarding the Section 408 program which should improve the review process. Michelle’s presentation will address the Section 408 program and updates to the review process.

The Society of American Military Engineers is the only nonprofit professional engineering education organization that actively promotes the advancement of both individual technical knowledge and the collective engineering capabilities of governments, the uniformed services and private industry.

Our goal is to unite public and private sector entities and individuals in the A/E/C fields so that we can prepare for and overcome natural and man made disasters, acts of terrorism, and improve security at home and abroad.

The Minneapolis–Saint Paul Post accomplishes this goal locally by supporting monthly luncheon meetings and other professional/social activities attended by members of local government, military, private industry, students and other interested parties. These meetings are announced via our e-mail distribution list and quarterly newsletter. We are supported by the national Society of American Military Engineers and publications such as The Military Engineer, which also promotes the interests and goals of our society and its members. Please peruse our website to discover the benefits of SAME Minneapolis-Saint Paul Post membership.
