About Us

North Atlantic Division Headquarters Building

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers North Atlantic Division is a robust team executing diverse missions throughout 13 states in the Northeast, plus Washington, D.C., as well as throughout Europe, Africa and anywhere in the world where we are needed.

Headquartered at Fort Hamilton, in Brooklyn, New York, the Division provides engineering, construction, project management and contracting services to plan, design, build, operate and maintain projects to support the military, protect America's water resources, and restore and enhance the environment. The work includes projects for international, federal, state, and local governments and agencies.

Missions are executed through six District offices, located in Concord, MA; New York City; Philadelphia; Baltimore; Norfolk, VA; and Wiesbaden, Germany.

Our projects improve living conditions and readiness for the U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force at more than 60 U.S. military installations in the Northeast and overseas. The North Atlantic Division offers a wide range of services to its diverse base of Department of Defense stakeholders and executes a robust military construction mission workload valued at $2–3 billion annually.

As funded by Congress, we maintain and improve federal navigation channels in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Norfolk harbors and support the American public with flood risk management and hurricane and storm risk mitigation projects such as dams, levees and floodwalls. When called upon, we work with FEMA on disaster response.

We are proud to be the National Planning Center of Expertise for Coastal Storm Risk Management services, and we are continually seeking to develop, maintain and apply the best national and regional expertise in science and engineering to protect our coastlines.

We also pride ourselves with being good stewards of the lands and waters at USACE water resources projects. Our natural resources management mission is to manage and conserve natural resources, consistent with the ecosystem management principles, while providing quality public outdoor recreation experiences to serve the needs of present and future generations.

Through deeds, not words, we are...
