he U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) South Pacific Division (SPD) provides federal and military engineering support in California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, New Mexico, and in parts of Colorado, Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, and Texas. Comprised of 2,300 Soldiers and civilians at five operating districts (headquartered in Los Angeles, Sacramento, San Francisco, Albuquerque, and Phoenix), the division manages a broad range of challenging missions across an economically, environmentally, and culturally diverse region. The South Pacific Division’s Military Construction program supports 25 Army and Air Force installations, including Military Ocean Terminal-Concord, a crucial component of military logistics and readiness, as well as Nellis, Cannon, Hill, and Kirtland Air Force Bases. The division is also partnering with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to build world-class medical facilities to support veterans. SPD is managing a $3.5 billion mega-program to modernize seven VA hospitals in California and Nevada, working in partnership to deliver projects that will serve those who have served our country.

South Pacific Division’s Civil Works program leverages federal resources for navigation, flood damage reduction, and ecosystem restoration. In the predominantly arid Pacific Southwest, water resources are vital to agriculture, urban development, natural ecosystems, tribal interests, and recreation. Major river basins include the Sacramento, San Joaquin, Santa Ana, Colorado, and Rio Grande, which are governed by complex water rights. Accordingly, the division works in partnership with other federal agencies, state governments, and local communities on collaborative solutions to these complex water resource issues. Under the Bipartisan Budget Act Storm Supplemental, the division is executing $2.5 billion in long-term investment construction focused on flood risk resiliency to reduce risk to communities and infrastructure. The division is also home to the Urban Search and Rescue Program, which trains and deploys structural engineers to augment the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) task forces, the military, and others in evaluating immediate structural conditions in a natural or man-made disaster.
