Program Information - WOTS
The Water Operations Technical Support (WOTS) Program was initiated in FY 1985 to
support technology transfer efforts for environmental and water quality operational
studies. The WOTS Program provides effective environmental and water management
engineering technology to address a wide range of water resource management problems
at Corps of Engineers reservoir and waterway projects, and in the river systems
affected by project operations nationwide.
The program provides technology to solve water management and related environmental
problems resulting from the presence of nonindigenous aquatic species and tailwater
fisheries at pump-back hydropower projects. The program also examines water management
impacts of shoreline erosion control and reservoir sedimentation, and other project
operations related to environmental and water management issues.
Since its inception, the WOTS Program has provided environmental and water management
technological solutions to over 1,100 problems identified at projects from every
Corps District. The program annually publishes and distributes user manuals, information
bulletins, technical notes, and technical reports. In addition, the program annually
conducts speciality workshops, training personnel on the latest environmental and
water management management techniques.
