Emergency Streambank and Shoreline Protection found under CAP Section 14 of the Flood Control Act of 1946, as amended, authorizes the Corps of Engineers to study, design, and construct emergency streambank and shoreline protection to protect public services including, but not limited to, streets, bridges, schools, water and sewer lines, cultural resource sites, churches, and other non-profit organizations from damage and/or loss by natural erosion. Private property or vacant lands are not eligible. It must be natural erosion from a body of water threatening the loss of a public service and/or facility, and cannot be from controlled lake level fluctuations or overland flow. Erosion protection must be more cost effective than relocating the facility and must be environmentally acceptable.
