    John Fogarty, Bonnet Carre’ Spillway project manager, provides a briefing to delegates from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam and the World Bank during their visit to the Bonnet Carre’ Spillway in St. Rose, La., June 3, 2024. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers completed construction of the spillway in 1931 in response to the Great Flood of 1927, and this structure serves as a vital element of the comprehensive plan for flood damage risk management in the Lower Mississippi River Valley. USACE hosted delegates from the World Bank and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam during their visit to the United States in June 2024. Over the past 15 years, USACE has actively engaged in initiatives aimed at sharing best practices in water management, disaster risk mitigation, and sustainable development in the Mekong and across the Indo-Pacific region to share insights on approaches to water resource management and ‘Nature-Based Solutions’ or ‘Engineering with Nature’.
