6 Today, the Portland District employs more than 1,100 people…
700+ around Oregon at our dams, projects and field offices 80 aboard the Essayons and the Yaquina 400 work in Portland More than 300 are in the engineering profession! Today, the Portland District has more than 1,200 employees. Six multi-purpose operating projects More than 500 work at Bonneville, The Dalles, John Day, Willamette Valley Project, Rogue River Basin Operating Projects Almost 100 work aboard the District’s two dredges, the Yaquina and Essayons Resident Offices Channels and Harbors Project. Field Offices

7 Civil Works Missions Regulatory Navigation Hydropower Recreation
Irrigation / Water Supply The Corps’ civil works missions are diverse. Hydropower 25.4 million megawatt hours annually % of hydropower produced by Corps % of all Federal Hydropower. Installed capacity projects. * Navigation: Maintain over 720 miles of Federal Channel. Portland is 2nd largest wheat export port and 3rd largest auto port in USA. Columbia River is 3rd largest grain export center in world. * Flood Damage Reduction: $24 billion damages prevented from $1.2 billion Investment. ($5.3 billion damages prevented in alone.) * Fish and Wildlife: Increased mission emphasis on preserving and restoring the environment. Many ecosystem and habitat restoration projects. * Recreation: 12 million visitors in NWP. 3.5 million to Bonneville Dam alone. Environmental Protection & Restoration Flood Damage Reduction Emergency Response

9 Key Trends 2014 WRDA – Water Resources Reform and Development Act – Corps HQ is developing implementation guidance Ban on Congressional Ear Marks is likely to continue; programmatic funding to take their place Increasing requirements to deal with aging infrastructure Key Trends.

10 Key Trends Continued strong hydropower investment program with BPA funding Continued emphasis on improving Columbia River fish survival Ramping up efforts on Willamette Valley fish survival Key Trends. BPA funding comes from rate payers. So we do not have the same kind of uncertainty with future budgets. CRFM (Columbia). Efforts in the Columbia are winding down. CRFM (Willamette). Efforts in the Willamette are ramping up.

12 Investigations (I) Projects
Willamette River Environmental Dredging Willamette River Floodplain Restoration Willamette Basin Review Each of these projects is in the feasibility phase. Funding is limited at this stage. Willamette River Environmental Dredging. Project will assess opportunities for ecosystem restoration and contaminated sediment clean-up of potential sites in the Lower Willamette River. Port of Portland and City of Portland are the local cost-share sponsors. Willamette River Floodplain Restoration. Authorized for construction in the 2014 WRDA bill that was signed by the President last week. Project purpose is to restore Willamette River floodplain habitat, to include riverine aquatic bed, forested wetland, and riparian woodland habitat. Project is currently focused on habitat restoration of the Middle and Coast Forks of the Willamette River. The Mid-Willamette Council of Governments on behalf of The Nature Conservancy is the local cost-share sponsor. Willamette Basin Review. Water allocation study for the Willamette Valley projects.

13 Construction (C) Projects
Columbia River Channel Improvements ($250K) Mouth of the Columbia River Jetties Rehab ($1M) Columbia River Fish Mitigation (CRFM) Program Columbia River Projects ($15.6M) Willamette Valley Projects ($24.6M) Lower Columbia River Ecosystem Restoration (Section 536) Program ($4.6M) Mt. St. Helens Sediment Control ($600K) Elk Creek ($1.2M) Specifically authorized construction projects. Columbia River Channel Improvements. Improve the deep-draft transport of goods on the authorized navigation channel by increasing channel depth to 43ft and to provide ecosystem restoration for fish and wildlife habitats. Columbia River portion is complete. Next phase of work will be deepening of the Lower Willamette River portion. Mouth of the Columbia River Jetties Rehab. Major Rehabilitation the Mouth of Columbia River (MCR) jetty system which consists of three rubble-mound jetties, with a total originally authorized length of 10.2 miles, constructed from on massive tidal shoals to secure consistent navigation through the coastal inlet. The North Jetty is about 2.5 miles long and the South Jetty is about 6.6 miles long; Spur Jetty ‘A’ is about 0.3 miles long. $257M new start in this year’s budget. Expect to possibly see large construction contracts to repair the jetties in the future. CRFM – Provides mitigation for the impact of Corps’ dams on listed salmon and steelhead. Improvements at most of the Columbia and Snake River projects is complete. The Corps is now ramping up efforts on fish passage at Willamette Valley Projects. I will be discussing some of the upcoming construction projects for this program. Lower Columbia River Ecosystem Restoration (Section 536) Program. This authority was created, in part, to help the Corps meet the needs of listed salmon and steelhead in the Columbia River Estuary, which is one of the primary requirements in the 2008 Federal Columbia River Power System (FCRPS) Biological Opinions. Mt. St. Helens. This project was initiated in response to the eruption of Mt. St. Helens. The eruption caused millions of tons of sediment to be transported into river systems causing serious flood risks to local communities. The focus is to determine a long term sediment management plan to maintain flood protection through 2035. Elk Creek. Project is now a restoration project with the notch of the partially constructed dam to provide fish passage upstream. In FY14 Portland District will complete the construction phase to include the replacement of two vehicle bridges with foot bridges.

14 Operations and Maintenance (O&M)
Routine O&M Services contracts Channel maintenance Regulatory Non-Routine O&M Projects Tainter gate repairs ($8.7M) MCR Jetty repairs ($10.5M) Routine O&M – Everyday activities required to operate and maintain our powerhouses, navigation locks, recreation facilities, fish facilities, dams and regulate flows in the Columbia and Willamette Rivers. This also includes our work to maintain federal navigation channels to authorized depths using our dredges. Regulatory – Issuance of permits. Non-Routine O&M Projects. Repair, replacement, or rehabilitation of facilities that is not included in our routine maintenance of them. Examples include Willamette Valley Tainter gate repairs and MCR jetty maintenance.

15 BPA Large Cap Program Approximately $50 M/year in BPA Large Cap funding Improvements to NWP Powerhouses System controls Unit rewinds Turbine replacements Station service upgrades Crane rehabs Investments in aging infrastructure Improvements in performance & reliability, particularly needed to integrate wind energy Definition of Large Cap: direct funded agreement Capital improvements as a part of asset management strategy for hydropower. Use HydroAmp to assess components. These ‘direct funding agreements’ opened the door to an integrated and business like approach to system management and are already contributing to improvements in overall performance.

POSSIBLE FUTURE CONTRACTS The District is in the process of evaluating potential future contracts, and the two listed here are being considered. We have 4 Multi-disciplinary contracts (3 large and 1 small) set to expire in 2016 and The H&H IDC will be replacing an incumbent contract which is anticipated to expire in October 0f 2014. Historically, the District has reported an A/E percentage of 30% to 40% each year; but this may be lower this year as a result of the economic climate. We are currently reporting an A/E percentage of 28.4%. This means that 28.4% of our E&D program is being performed by the A/E community through these contract vehicles.
