Bank Stabilization The largest item of expense an- cics, keeps books and balances nually is the bank stabilization its accounts on a fiscal year bas-!work on the Mississippi River. is which extends from June 30 of one year to July 1 of the next. The close of this fiscal year is n time for reflection and review of accomplishments over the past year ai;d of detailed planning and scheduling of work to be done in the coming year. Colonel James E. Walsh, District Engineer, said, "In planning our work many factors must be considered. Money, of course, is a major clement but other things which must be analysed arc the requirements for manpower in our various departments; the need to take advantage of the capabilities of our ex- Thc portion of the river's bonks above low water is paved with liot mix asphalt. This work is done by contract and last year's upper bank pnving cost $831,600. The nature of the underwater construction requires massive special equipment and frequent changes in location and quantities which would be extremely difficult to administer by contract, so for these reasons Government plant and hired labor forces are employed. T h e tremendous quantity of articulated concrete used is all produced by contract. Improved equipment and good management have increased Ihe pert engineering personnel; the daily output of this river conslruc- priorily of construction items; the length of the construction period which may be anticipated (weather and river stages arc unknown factors in advance planning); the availability of materials and the timing of each phase of the work so as not to delay successive steps or lose time between the steps. Experience and good jildgment must bo relied upon to produce a realistic work program for the year." Quite A Success The 1960 fiscal year, just ended, was considered quite a success when compared with the master program which was sel up last July at the beginning ol the year. The District is responsible for a program of civil works in flooc control and water resource development which totaled $31,000,000 in the 1D60 fiscal year. It is the policy of the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers to accom plish as much of its work as possible through private contractors obtained by bidding procedures Last year the District awardec tion unit about 100 per cent in the Inst 10 years.
