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 in New York have been turned over to the local public sponsor, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) and the city, town or village, which is responsible for O&M.  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. 

 

Within the New York District there are 23 projects in the ICW inventory in the State of New York:
