The United States Army Corps of Engineers (ACE) has several programs that involve funding and technical assistant that may be applicable to a dam removal project. One example is Section 206 of the Water Resources Development Act of 1996 related to Aquatic Ecosystem Restoration. The 206 program for example would include both funding and technical service (design) by the ACE. The involvement of the ACE would be dependent on availability of federal funding as well as the availability of the local cost share which might vary from 35 -50%.
