Project Factsheets by State

The Philadelphia District manages water resources of the Delaware River basin; builds facilities for the Army and Air Force; and provides engineering and environmental services for other agencies. We serve more than nine million people across portions of Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. But our reach also extends around the world with our support to Overseas Contingency Operations. View factsheets for our civil works projects by state:
