Huntington District

Col. Jason Evers, commander, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Huntington District, poses with recipients of the Commander's Award for Civil Service at the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center in Vicksburg, Miss., July 31, 2019. Evers presented the awards in recognition of the outstanding partnership between the Huntington District and ERDC and for the exceptional efforts in hydraulic modeling in support of the Bluestone Dam Safety Assurance Mega-Project.
The makeover at Bluestone Dam has been a slow process – but the final part of the process is now underway.
Ed Stowasser, Hydraulic Engineer, Huntington District, Dam Safety Production Center recently returned from a trip to Laos in support of United States Indo-Pacific Command, the US Department of State, the US Embassy in Vientiane, and the Lao PDR Ministry of Energy and Mines. He served on a team of subject matter experts to provide technical review and advice to the Government of Laos’ Dam Safety International Advisory team. This effort was part of the Government of Laos’ national dam safety initiative to help the Government of Laos conduct a safety review of foreign owned and operated hydropower facilities throughout the country.
On July 9, 2019 the Bluestone Dam Safety Assurance Team were joined by U.S. Congresswoman Carol Miller from the 3rd District of West Virginia and representatives from Senator Manchin and Senator Capito, as well Hinton City Mayor Joe Blankenship, the WV Division of Natural Resources Director Stephen McDaniel, and Tim Tailor from Brayman Construction to help celebrate major accomplishments since the receipt of full funding in the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018.
