The Water Operations Technical Support (WOTS) Program provides rapid direct technical
assistance to Corps of Engineers field offices in implementing technology to solve
water quality environmental problems at Corps projects. The WOTS Program is an Operations
and Maintenance (O&M) funded program, and is assigned to the U.S. Army Engineer
Research and Development Center (ERDC), Environmental Laboratory (EL).
Requests for Direct Technical Assistance should be e-mailed to Pat Deliman, Program
The assistance request should name the project, state the nature of the problem,
and describe the type of assistance required. The request should identify a point
of contact, telephone number, and e-mail address. If a technical person at the ERDC
has been contacted and has knowledge of the problem, a request for that individual
may be expressed in the request. Upon receipt, each request will be directed to
the proper ERDC technical staff member for response.
Direct technical assistance under the WOTS Program is provided at no cost to the
user and is limited to 5 man-days, including travel. The results of the assistance
provided will be transmitted to your organization from the Program Manager, WOTS.
