The Corps’s De De Cordell says the employees will be off the job one day per week from July 8 to September.

“Contracting folks, our legal folks for reviewing contracts and processing essential paperwork, and whatnot -there are folks in all of these different support offices that are effected.”

The order is a result of the federal budget sequester and affects employees in the Monterey and Reno offices, as well as in Utah and Arizona.

The Department of Civil Works funds levee protection work performed by the Corps and those employees –about 800 in Sacramento- are not affected by the Department of Defense order.
