From the Purpose: "The purpose of H.R. 7575, the 'Water Resources Development Act of 2020', as amended, is to authorize the United States Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) to carry out water resources development activities for the Nation, usually through cost-shared partnerships with non-Federal sponsors. Activities include projects or studies to address river and coastal navigation, the reduction of flood and hurricane storm damage risks, shoreline protection, water supply and conservation, the restoration and protection of ecosystems and the environment, and disaster response and recovery. H.R. 7575, as amended, enhances the Corps' responsibility to address the long-term resiliency of Corps projects, enables the Corps to address the deferred maintenance of our Nation's ports and harbors, expands the Corps' ability to identify and implement nature-based and natural infrastructure components, addresses the affordability of Corps projects for economically disadvantaged and rural communities, and modernizes aspects of the Corps' decision-making structure."
