FACT SHEET - Inspection of Completed Works, NJ

Operation & Maintenance

Published Feb. 2, 2018

DESCRIPTION:  The Inspection of Completed Works (ICW) Program is an Operations and Maintenance (O&M) Program that provides for Corps of Engineers inspections of Flood Risk Management Projects (FRMPs) and Hurricane Shore Protection Projects (HSPPs) that have been constructed by the Federal Government. The projects have been turned over to the local public sponsor (city, town or village), which is responsible for O&M.  Beach Protection Projects are also overseen by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP). Inspections are conducted jointly by engineers or technical representatives of the New York District and the local public sponsors, noting any observable deficiencies that need to be addressed in order for the project to maintain its structural integrity and design capabilities and provide flood protection to the community.
