Description: Technical Note
Purpose: Implementation of Engineering With Nature (EWN) practices and principles across the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) requires that a broad base of EWN understanding and support be built. The Deer Island Aquatic Ecosystem Restoration Project (Deer Island AERP) has been identified as a case study for EWN, based on its “triple-win” benefits, operational efficiency achievements, use of natural processes, and high degree of stakeholder collaboration. The purpose of this technical note is to showcase the Deer Island AERP from an EWN perspective. Summary case studies such as this, which document the objectives, methods, and outcomes of projects with EWN features, provide useful information for others with like missions and goals. This case study was conducted as an activity of the EWN Initiative and sponsored by the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) Navigation Research, Development, and Technology portfolio, Dredging Operations Environmental Research Program, USACE Mobile District, and the State of Mississippi.
