The Francis E. Walter Dam has prevented more than $220 million in flood damages since its construction. It also supports recreation along the Lehigh River with planned fishing and whitewater rafting water releases.

In July 2019, USACE awarded a contract to Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Company for periodic nourishment of the Cape May Inlet to Lower Township (Cape May City) Coastal Storm Risk Management project. Work began in September 2019.
On July 21, USACE and its contractor completed dredging and sand placement for the Manasquan Inlet to Barnegat Inlet Coastal Storm Risk Management project. The project covers 13 miles of coastline along the Barnegat Peninsula and is designed to reduce the risk of storm damages for communities.
