USACE Announces Release of Anticipated Ohio River Basin Climate Report
Ohio River Basin - Formulating Climate Change Mitigation/Adaptation Strategies through Regional Collaboration with the ORB Alliance
ALEXANDRIA, VIRGINIA. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Huntington District in cooperation with the Pittsburgh, Louisville, and Nashville Districts, and the Great Lakes and Ohio River Division office, has prepared an adaptation pilot study to address the effects of climate change within the Ohio River Basin through a collaborative effort with member agencies and organizations of the Ohio River Basin Alliance.
This pilot study investigated potential climate change impacts to basin infrastructure. Infrastructure components include Federal facilities operated for reduction of flood damages, navigation, local protection, water supply and hydroelectric power production. The study also investigated the potential impacts on terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems that are influenced by operation of these infrastructure components.
The report, finalized in May, has completed the final stages of publication review and is now available.
