ABSTRACT

Hurricane Disaster Assistance-- Emergency Watershed Protection Program   [open pdf - 8MB]

From the Document: "Our objective was to evaluate NRCS' [Natural Resources Conservation Service] controls over the EWP [Emergency Watershed Protection] Program relating to hurricane disaster assistance provided for Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria. [...] The Emergency Watershed Protection (EWP) Program offers technical and financial assistance to help local communities mitigate imminent hazards to life and property caused by floods, fires, windstorms, and other natural occurrences that impair a watershed. In our review, we found that the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) did not establish and maintain a database to accurately track EWP Program projects at the national level. Without a database, NRCS is unable to assess, improve, or report on program effectiveness."
