Los Angeles District

The Los Angeles District provides civil works and military engineering support to Southern California, Nevada, Arizona, and parts of Utah. The area encompasses 226,000 square miles, 420 miles of coastline, 14 harbors, and the highest, lowest, and hottest spots in the contiguous 48 states. The scope of missions in the district vary from supporting the world’s largest groundwater recharge system in Orange County, Calif., to our involvement in one of the nation’s most significant transportation projects, the California High-Speed Rail.

Among the 14 navigation projects and 13 miles of breakwaters maintained by the district are the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach which account for a majority of West Coast trade and shipping.

Major flood-control projects include improvements to Prado Dam and the Santa Ana River Mainstem Project in Southern California.

The district is responsible for the operation and maintenance of 16 dams and 54 miles of flood control channels. The dams and recreation areas host more than 7 million visitors a year.

Military missions at nine installations include construction of a hospital at Fort Irwin, Calif., and F-35 fighter jet facilities at Luke Air Force Base, Ariz.

Ecosystem restoration projects form a major part of the district’s workload. These include the Tres Rios project in the heart of Phoenix and Los Angeles River projects and studies, focused on water quality improvements and passive recreation opportunities along portions of these rivers.

The Interagency and International Support program allows the district to do work for other federal agencies by tailoring program support capabilities to customer requirements and budget. Major projects include construction of the border fence for DHS and rehabilitation of infrastructure at VA facilities.

Mission Statement
"We provide innovative and enduring engineering solutions across the full spectrum of program/project delivery to provide value and quality, on-schedule, to our military/civilian customers and partners and we support our federal/state partners by responding to national emergencies with leadership and technical expertise."

 

The Sacramento District was formed in October 1929, before that it was part of the San Francisco District, formed in 1866. Its boundaries included the rivers and waterways within areas drained by the Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers above their confluence at the head of Suisun Bay. It was entirely within the State of California, from the Sierra Nevada on the east and Oregon border on the north to the Tehachapi Mountains on the south.

Military construction responsibilities were added to the district in 1941 and again in 1943, the civil boundaries were expanded to include the area of the former Salt Lake City District. In 1968, the Sacramento District became the second largest in the contiguous United States when territory was transferred from the Los Angeles District. Added were all of Utah, except the southwest corner, Colorado from the Continental Divide west, the southwest corner of Wyoming, northeast corner of Arizona and the northwest corner of New Mexico for a total of 290,000 square miles.  

Approximately 1,000 military and civilian employees work in the Sacramento District today. It is one of the largest districts in the Corps, covering all or part of nine western states.

Region at a Glance:

Established in 1888, South Pacific Division is one of the Corps’ eight regions nationwide. Four operating Districts, headquartered in Los Angeles, Sacrament, San Francisco and Albuquerque, provide federal and military engineering support in California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, New Mexico and in parts of Colorado, Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming and Texas. The civil works program is oriented around major watershed in the region and leverages federal resources for navigation, flood damage reduction and ecosystem restoration. Major river basins include the Sacramento, San Joaquin, Santa Ana, Colorado and Rio Grande, which are governed by complex water rights. Water resources are vital to agriculture, urban development, natural ecosystems, Tribal interests and recreation.  There are more than 300 threatened and endangered species in the region. We issue regulatory permits under the Clean Water Act for development occurring in the nations’ waters and wetlands, balancing environmental stewardship with the need for economic and urban growth. The Corps works in partnership with other federal agencies, state governments and local communities on collaborative solutions to these complex water resource issues.
