On this special joint podcast from The Capitol Beach and Water Log, hosts Derek Brockbank, Howard Marlowe and Dan Ginolfi have a discussion with the leadership of U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Planning and Policy. Eric Bush, Acting Director, and Joe Redican, Deputy Director, bring district and division experience to their roles in leading Planning and Policy nationwide. They explain what planning means at the Corps, how local coastal communities and stakeholders can work with Corps planners to solve problems and tap into the extensive technical expertise at the Corps. They also discuss the value of regional coastal resilience studies (happening or being planned for the North Atlantic, South Atlantic, Great Lakes, Louisiana and Texas), and touch on STEM education starting as early as Pre-K (those summer interns really do get younger every year!).
