Employees with the US Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District will be helping those affected by Superstorm Sandy in the coming days and weeks.
Four of them are already en route to Albany, NY to help with debris removal. Dennis Potter, a wastewater treatment plant expert, will help rebuilt infrastructure.
“You have to be flexible because you never know exactly what you’re going to run into,” said Potter.
As a whole, the Corps has sent 500 of its people to the East Coast.
