Water Resources
USACE is responsible for the Inland Marine Transportation System (IMTS).  The IMTS includes more than 12,000 miles of waterways throughout the United States.  It is host to hundreds of dams, locks, hydroelectric sites, and other facilities.  It functions like an “inland marine highway” for barges and other boats.  There are a variety of occupations involved in the operations and maintenance of the navigation locks and dams throughout the IMTS.

We offer challenging career opportunities in these fields and more:
