Abstract: Abstract: “Incremental changes” implies small to large changes in watershed development activities over time; such activities can influence hydrologic, geomorphic, ecological, and other conditions. This report presents a review of U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) practices for integrating such changes into planning, as well as National Research Council studies directed to USACE planning, and a chronology report on the Lake Pontchartrain & Vicinity Hurricane Protection Project (LP&VHPP). USACE engineer regulations, guidance manuals, and other documents pertaining to the three primary USACE mission areas (inland navigation, flood damage reduction, and ecosystem restoration) were also reviewed to identify which would require updating to reflect evaluations of incremental changes that could impact project or program performance. Recommendations are made to update or modify specific regulations and guidance.
