US Army Corps of Engineers: USACE Opens Updated National Levee Database

US Army Corps of Engineers: USACE Opens Updated National Levee Database. “The database includes attributes of levees and floodwalls relevant to flood fighting, design, construction, operation, maintenance, repair and inspection. Because the location and characteristics of levee systems can be viewed on a map with real-time data from other sources, such as stream gauges and weather radar, it is a useful tool for a variety of public agencies and individuals including flood plain managers, emergency management agencies, levee system sponsors and citizens who live or work behind a levee. Currently the NLD includes information on approximately 33,000 miles of levee, which includes 14,500 miles of levees systems associated with USACE programs, 15,000 miles from the FEMA mid-term levee inventory and several other states and federal agencies.”
