Michael Knoff was recently selected as the new deputy chief of the engineering and construction division.

“In my 21 years in the St. Paul District, this is the most dynamic time I’ve seen in the engineering and construction division,” Knoff said. “I’m excited to be in a position to work with a great group of supervisors and an outstanding, dedicated staff to help strengthen the division to serve the needs of our nation now and into the future.”

Knoff has worked for the Corps since 1985 and in the St. Paul District since 1999. He was previously the chief of the district’s hydraulics and hydrology branch.
