Leaders from the Afghanistan National Army, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Lakeshore celebrate the completion of the Wadi Mitigation and Outer Perimeter Road Project Sunday at the ANA's 201st Corps Garrison in Gamberi, Laghman Province, Afghanistan. Constructed by Detroit-based Lakeshore Toltest JV LLC., the Wadi Mitigation and Outer Perimeter Road project was built after the garrison experiences two back-to-back 100-year floods in 2009 and 2010. A 100-year flood is often described as flooding that is expected to exceed water levels every 100 years on average, thus there is a 1 percent chance of being equaled or exceeded in any single year.
