Levee Safety: Army Corps of Engineers and FEMA Have Made Little Progress in Carrying Out Required Activities
Anne-Marie Fennell (au)
Levees, which are man-made structures such as earthen embankments or concrete floodwalls, play a vital role in reducing the risk of flooding. Their failure can contribute to loss of lives or property, as shown by the devastation of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. It is estimated that there are over 100,000 miles of levees across the U.S., many owned or operated by nonfederal entities. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) are the two principal federal agencies with authorities related to levee safety. This report examines the Corpsńˇ╗ and FEMAńˇ╗s progress in carrying out key national activities related to levee safety. Includes recommendations. Table and figures. This is a print n demand report.
