Annual Project Inspections

In addition to daily monitoring by project operators, all DEP flood protection projects undergo a rigorous safety inspection each year by trained engineering staff. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and DEP's Bureau of Waterways Engineering and Wetlands have developed a unique, cooperative arrangement to meet these inspection responsibilities. The annual inspections are rotated each year between the two agencies and the final inspection report is reviewed and co-signed by managers in each agency.
