District Missions

The Omaha District provides quality service as the Federal Engineer for the district, which spans all or part of 10 states, covering 700,000 square miles.

We strive to be viewed as the preferred Federal source for investigation, engineering and construction services in the areas of water resources, design, construction, and environmental restoration—to maintain our expertise and readiness to serve the Nation during national and natural emergencies.

We have diverse capabilities, a breadth of experience, a wealth of expertise, and a large contingent of highly qualified contractors on board to accomplish our work. The Omaha District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, can provide a wide range of talent, skills, and service, including engineering, operations, construction, planning, contracting, and real estate.

We will provide consistent quality and responsive cost-effective engineering and technical support. If services outside the Omaha District are needed, we are partners with other Corps offices and can tie into a larger network of additional capabilities. The Omaha District is responsible for the execution of three major missions:

  • Federal civil works activities  including administration of the Clean Water Act Section 404 regulatory program in the upper Missouri River basin.
  • Engineering design and construction for the Army and Air Force in eight Mountain and Upper Midwest states.
  • Hazardous, toxic, and radioactive waste cleanup: Restoring the environment for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Defense at sites throughout the United States.
