Pacific Ocean Division (POD), U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

The Pacific Ocean Division is the engineering, design and construction agent for the Army and Air Force in Alaska, the Army in Hawaii, and for all Department of Defense agencies in Japan, the Republic of Korea and Kwajalein Atoll, Marshall Islands.

Most notably, the division contributes significantly to the peace and security in the Pacific region through the execution of multibillion-dollar construction programs for U.S. forces in Japan and the Republic of Korea.

Pacific Ocean Division also supports U.S. Pacific Command and U.S. Army Pacific’s Theater Security Cooperation strategies, the Humanitarian Assistance Program and Civil Military Emergency Preparedness with projects throughout the Asia-Pacific region.

The Division’s 1,500-plus-strong workforce produces every type of construction in support of service members and their families, from barracks to high-rise family housing, from fitness centers to child care centers, and from ship berths to aircraft runways and hangars.

In addition, POD has a civil works mission in Alaska and Hawaii. The division is responsible for executing federal water resources development programs in Alaska and Hawaii, as well as in U.S.-controlled land in the Pacific.

Ancillary to these duties are environmental services that include studies and hazardous and toxic waste cleanup.

The POD has the largest area of responsibility of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ nine divisions. The division’s mission is executed through its four districts: Honolulu, Alaska, Japan and the Far East (Korea).
