Mission Statement

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers provides design and engineering services and construction support for a variety of military and civilian projects world wide. One of the Army Corps' primary civil roles is to manage the nation's waterways and wetlands. The Army Corps activities include, but are not limited to, constructing projects approved by Congress for flood control, commercial navigation, or shipping channel maintenance; emergency response to natural disasters; operating and maintaining flood control reservoirs and public reclamation facilities; and regulating activities in wetlands including issuing dredge and fill permits and authorizing the establishment of wetland areas. The Army Corps is also the largest water based recreational agency in the U.S.

Description

The Bay Model Visitor Center is a fully accessible education center administered by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers which makes possible the viewing of a (retired) scientific tool: a working hydraulic model of the San Francisco Bay and Sacramento - San Joaquin River Delta System. The Model provides a unique opportunity to view the complete Bay-Delta system at a glance. Visitors are able to observe an average day's tidal pattern on the model in under 15 minutes!
