    Memorandum for Delegation and Model Agreement for Watercraft Inspection Stations
    Section 104(d) of the River and Harbor Act of 1958, as amended, authorized a comprehensive program to provide for the prevention and control of noxious aquatic plants and aquatic invasive species from the navigable waters, tributary streams, connecting channels, and other allied waters of the United States. The basins, as authorized for Watercraft Inspection and Decontamination Programs, include the Columbia, Upper Missouri, Upper Colorado, South Platte, Arkansas, and Russian River Basins along with watersheds that adjoin an international border between the U.S. and Canada.

    The attached memorandum, signed by Mr. Alvin Lee, Director of Civil Works, transmits a model cost sharing agreement for Section 104(d) to conduct invasive species activities to protect the aforementioned basins. Additionally, the memo further delegates review and approval authority of the Section 104(d) agreement. Authority to approve an agreement that does not deviate from the approved model has been delegated to the MSC Commander. Division Counsel concurrence that the agreement does not deviate from the subject model, and is appropriate for use for the particular invasive species activities, is required prior to approval. The District Commander is authorized to execute the agreement after its approval.

    Please share this information with your Commanders, Program Directors and Regional Buisness Leaders as necessary. HQ POC for questions is Ms. Tara Whitsel tara.j.whitsel@usace.army.mil who is backfilling while Mr. Jeremy Crossland, Program Manager for Land Use and Natural Resources, Jeremy.M.Crossland@usace.army.mil is on assignment with ERDC until 25 April 2022.

    Thank you,
    Jeff

    Chief, Natural Resources Management
