Welcome to the Huntington District - A thriving team of nationally-respected, values-driven, professionals collaboratively pioneering solutions to our Nation’s toughest challenges.

The Huntington District is one of more than 40 Corps Districts worldwide.  It is responsible for the 311 miles of the Ohio River, along with the tributary rivers and drainage basins that flow into the Ohio River. In all, the District employs nearly 800 people and encompasses 45,000 square miles in parts of five states, including West Virginia, Ohio, Kentucky, Virginia, and North Carolina. 

The Huntington District has built and now maintains 35 flood risk reduction projects, more than any other district in the Corps.  Our dams, floodwalls, levees, and stream improvement projects have prevented $12.2 billion in flood damages. The Huntington District is also the home of two national centers; the Dam Safety Modification Mandatory Center of Expertise and the Planning Center of Expertise for Inland Navigation.

We would love to have you join our great team! For more information, please contact our Recruitment Coordinator at
