The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has signed an agreement with the State of Florida to accept an additional $50 million of state funds to help with rehabilitation of the Herbert Hoover Dike surrounding Lake Okeechobee.The agreement, known as a Contributed Funds Memorandum of Agreement, was signed yesterday by U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Jacksonville District Commander Col. Jason Kirk and Florida Department of Environmental Protection Secretary Noah Valenstein.A similar agreement was signed earlier this year, bringing the total State of Florida contributions to advance Herbert Hoover Dike construction to $100 million.USACE has been undertaking a $1.8 billion rehabilitation program designed to reduce flood risk for people living and working around the lake. Since 2001, the Corps has invested more than $1 billion to construct several features that include installation of 21 miles of seepage barrier and replacement of close to two dozen water control structures.According tom the Corps, the State’s contributions, along with federal funding, will continue to advance Herbert Hoover Dike construction with the award of addition cutoff wall construction contracts over the next year.The dike, due to the methods of construction at the time, is susceptible to seepage that can lead to erosion. The installation of the cut-off wall and replacement of water control structures is expected to reduce seepage thereby reducing risk for those who live and work in the area.The Herbert Hoover Dike project also recently received $514 million in Supplemental Long Term Recovery Investment Plan funding to fully-fund the project and complete construction in 2022.Additionally, the Lake Okeechobee Regulation Study (LORS) revision efforts are underway, with the project team currently developing the plan of action to complete the study that will lead to an updated, more flexible water management schedule.

I also called over to Chris Morgan and Andy Massey. “I said to Brendan, ‘Look, I’ve got a problem here…’ I nodded down to my privates. ‘There’s a big gash … it’s bleeding,’ I said. “Chris acted quickly. He called a few of the backroom team over and they formed a little huddle so no one else could see what we were doing as I opened up my shorts. “Brendan peered down, grimaced and shook his head.” The footballer didn’t have the energy to celebrate their 2-0 win in the dressing room afterwards. Stevie, now Rangers FC boss, added: “I played on. The pain wasn’t too bad – just the dull ache that follows the sharp slicing sensation when your skin first gets cut open. “All the lads were falling about laughing. We had won, the atmosphere was good and they thought it was hilarious. I got zero sympathy from any of the lads. read also:Gerrard reacts to Liverpool’s first ever Premier League silverware “The lads were absolutely p***ing themselves now and you can imagine how many jokes about inches and stitches, penis size and my future performances at home with Alex. I might have smiled but I could have throttled the lot of them. “A bunch of footballers are the last people you want discussing the state of your sliced penis.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Steven Gerrard once tore his penis during a Liverpool match so badly that it left the doctor who treated him mentally scarred, he has revealed. The Liverpool legend, now 40, needed stitches on his tackle after he sustained an eye-watering laceration to his manhood during a cup tie. Andrew Massey was new to the role of the Reds’ team doctor – and the experience left him traumatised as Stevie’s was the first penis he sewed back together. Andy – promoted to the post of Fifa’s head doc in March – said: “Stevie came over to me at the end of the match and said, ‘Doc, you are going to have to have a look at this’. “I looked down and saw blood everywhere and thought, ‘Wow, that must be really sore’. “I was trying to think back to my medical training and nowhere in my training does it teach you how to stitch a penis. “I thought, ‘I don’t want the first penis I’ve stitched to be Steven Gerrard’s but it was’.” Andy joined Liverpool FC in 2013 as the academy doctor and match-day medical co-ordinator, before acting as first-team doctor on an interim basis a year later – a position made permanent after successfully sewing Stevie’s tackle. The medic spoke of his delicate job on Stevie for the first time on a footie podcast. Ex-Reds captain Stevie’s shorts ended up a bloodied mess during a January 2014 FA Cup tie against Bournemouth. Former Northern Ireland team doctor Andy cleared a room at Dean Court – Bournemouth’s home ground – and set about stitching the midfielder’s crown jewels back together. Praising Andy’s work Steven has said: “Doc Massey spoke to a few people and the room cleared. “I took off my shorts and underpants and had one last look. Ouch. I hoped I wasn’t saying goodbye to an old friend. “I got a jab first and then, careful not to look at what he was doing, I could tell he wasn’t feeling too comfortable about it either. “Doc Massey must have wished that he could have stayed at home treating the Academy kids’ cuts and bruises. “I didn’t talk much, though. I wanted him fully concentrated. “He did a good job. I felt no pain as he put in the stitches – four as he had predicted – and I walked back into the dressing room.” Promoted ContentWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?Birds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For Them6 Extreme Facts About Hurricanes6 Best Natural History Museums In The World7 Things That Actually Ruin Your Phone8 Weird Facts About Coffee That Will Surprise YouTop 10 Most Romantic Nations In The WorldThe Models Of Paintings Whom The Artists Were Madly In Love With6 Incredibly Strange Facts About HurricanesHere Are The Top 10 Tiniest Mobile Phones On The Planet!2020 Tattoo Trends: Here’s What You’ll See This YearThe Funniest Prankster Grandma And Her Grandson
