    U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Planning Associates Program class members carefully walk along an articulated mat armoring Aug. 23. It divides the Corps-built wetland Cells F and G in the Dallas Floodway System. Rising waters cover this road whenever a storm event conveys floodwaters from Cell F to Cell G and then on out to the Trinity River main channel at Loop 12. The Lower Chain of Wetlands creates a new quality habitat, improves water quality while reducing flood risk in the Dallas Floodway System.
