FORT WORTH, Texas - Today, the Fort Worth District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers received funding through the passage of a Continuing Resolution which will allow it to resume normal operations.

The District had to scale back numerous operations since the government shutdown Oct. 1. Among the impacted operations were all the Fort Worth District-managed parks, campsites and hunting areas along with its regulatory program.

Several logistical procedures which include call-back of furloughed personnel are required to fully reopen these facilities. The Corps anticipates a minimum of two to five working days before all facilities are fully reopened and operational.

“We are very pleased that a Continuing Resolution was passed and look forward to resuming normal operations and bringing our furloughed personnel back to work,” said Col. Charles Klinge, commander, Fort Worth District.

The Fort Worth District will provide listings and updates to the public on all impacted programs via public notices, social media and through our main District information line at 817-886-1306.
