Notes:

The Corps' error is detailed in a 191-page investigative report. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution formally requested the report on Nov. 26 under the federal Freedom of Information Act. More than four months passed before the Corps provided a heavily redacted copy. The Corps eliminated from the report all the names of those officials responsible for the mistake, several pages of findings, and descriptions of exhibits.
