Purpose: This document summarizes the major activities and findings of a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) workshop entitled “Regional Sediment Management (RSM) and Engineering With Nature (EWN).” The workshop was held August 20-22, 2013, at the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) in Vicksburg, Mississippi. Sponsored by the RSM and the Dredging Operations Environmental Research programs, the overall goals of the workshop were to: 1.) identify RSM and EWN opportunities within the USACE missions; 2.) introduce seven new EWN action projects; 3.) provide RSM program updates and conduct the annual RSM In-Progress Review of district initiatives for fiscal year 2013; 4.) share successes and lessons learned across the RSM and EWN communities; 5.) establish future RSM and EWN directions and collaborations with districts. Workshop participants included representatives from USACE Headquarters, ERDC, Institute for Water Resources-Hydrologic Engineering Center (IWR-HEC), and districts. The workshop included technical presentations and group breakout sessions on a broad range of topics associated with navigation, flood risk management, and environmental missions including innovative engineering and operational practices, modeling, data management, and strategic communications for the advancement of a joint RSM and EWN community. The coordinators of the workshop were Linda Lillycrop of ERDC Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory (CHL) and Dr. Todd Bridges of ERDC Environmental Laboratory (EL).
