The Pittsburgh District provides expertise to help the region and the nation meet water resources development, environmental and other engineering needs.
The US Army Corps of Engineers' involvement in works â€śof a civil natureâ€ť dates back almost to the origins of the United States. Over the years, as the Nationâ€™s needs have changed, so have the Armyâ€™s Civil Works missions. Those missions today fall into four broad areas.
- Water infrastructure
- Environmental management and restoration
- Response to natural and man-made disasters
- Engineering and technical services.
Missions in each of these areas support the Army, Department of Defense and other federal, state and local agencies.
The water temperature buoy network supports these missions by collecting data on reservoir water quality conditions, such as stratification, in order to operate district projects in accordance with congressionally authorized purposes.
