Lt. Gen. Scott Spellmon, the Corps’ commanding general and 55th U.S. Army chief of engineers, signed the chief’s report for the project Nov. 13 at the Corps’ headquarters in Washington D.C., which elevates the report to the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Civil Works, U.S. Office of Management and Budget, and to Congress for consideration of project authorization.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Los Angeles District and the Orange County Flood Control District recently signed an amendment to use Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 funds for select features of the Santa Ana River Mainstem project, which include raising the Prado Dam spillway by 20 feet; completing the lower Norco Bluffs toe protection project, and the Alcoa Phase 2 and River Road dikes; and ongoing mitigation responsibilities associated with the Prado Dam project features.
The CFC goal for the Los Angeles District is to ensure all of its employees are provided the campaign information and how to contribute, if they choose to do so.

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Los Angeles District Park Rangers Nick Figueroa and Mary Carmona issue parking citations May 17 to owners of several vehicles that were illegally parked adjacent to Corps Mojave River Dam emergency spillway in County of San Bernardino. The area also known as the “Deep Creek Spillway” is located on federal property and is restricted to authorized motor vehicles and personnel. Figueroa and Carmona were visiting the area to contact and advise trespassers they were not authorized to be in the dam area and it is not authorized for recreation. Trespassers are routinely ignoring posted “No Trespassing” signs, perimeter fencing and locked gates to access the area for swimming, camping and off-highway vehicle operation.
