Last December, President Biden signed the Water Resources Development Act of 2022 (WRDA ’22) into law. It is the latest in a decades-long series of biennial statutes that authorize new studies, construction starts, and other programs at the Corps of Engineers. Shudtz and Huang have taken a deep dive into the 150+-page legislation, examining the ways in which its provisions align with the principles of Engineering With Nature. In this webinar, Shudtz and Huang will provide background on the statute, describe how it came to pass, highlight elements that promote EWN, and discuss what lies ahead both in the near term and as Congress begins work on WRDA ’24.
