Our Mission

Established in 1866, 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 millions of people across portions of Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. But our reach extends around the world with our support to Overseas Contingency Operations.
