Army involvement in works "of a civil nature" goes back almost to the origins of the U.S. Over the years, as the nation's needs have changed, so have the Army's civil works missions. Those missions today fall in four broad areas: water infrastructure, environmental management and restoration, response to natural and manmade disasters, and engineering and technical services to the Army, Department of Defense, and other Federal agencies.
