The Army Corps of Engineers has denied our waiver and is making us pay for information we are entitled to see under federal law. Thanks to you and your speedy ourpouring of funds, we can quickly request our information and not give the Corps another reason to delay giving us the data we seek.

Thank you supporters of Levees.org for digging into your pockets and quickly contributing $1,674 to help us pay for information we requested under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

After Levees.org exposed the Army Corps of Engineers $5 million contract with a PR company Outreach Process Partners (OPP) to improve and beef up the Corps image after the flooding of 2005, Levees.org requested more details about this PR contract.
