BALTIMORE (WUSA) -- The water levels at 14 dams and lakes throughout Western Maryland, Central Pennsylvania and Southern New York continue to be monitored by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Baltimore District, it informed. 

The U.S. Army Corps is making sure there is "sufficient storage capacity to prevent downstream flooding." The district's emergency operations center is also continually sending district personnel and resources to provide technical assistance requested by local, state and federal officials, the U.S. Army Corps said. 

Col. Trey Jordan, the Baltimore District commander, conducted a visual inspection of the Atlantic Coast Shoreline Projection Project with the Town of Ocean City officials. The collaboration helped prevent any damages from the effect of Superstorm Sandy, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said.

The Baltimore District will use the information gathered in this week's assessment of Ocean City to plan needed repairs in the future.

"The Baltimore District also will resume its debris removal mission and remove floating debris that posses a hazard to navigation within the federal navigation channel [at the Baltimore Harbor]," the U.S. Army Corps said.
