Silver Jackets Webinar: National Levee Inventory and Review

On November 30, 2017, a one hour Silver Jackets webinar was held to address a USACE initiative, the National Levee Inventory and Review. There are thousands of miles of levees across the US. Some information is available for nearly 30,000 of those levee miles; but there are unknown number of miles of levees that haven’t been documented yet. The benefits and flood risks associated with many of these levees are unknown.
The USACE has a strategy to help identify and assess the conditions, benefits, and flood risks for each of these levees with the help from Silver Jackets teams. The USACE is conducting an inventory and one-time inspection of the nation’s levees as a key component of a potential national levee safety program, a program that envisions state levee safety programs that are complementary to current federal efforts.

Jamie McVicker and Cathi Sanders, both from the USACE, were the presenters.  Jamie is the Technical Levee Manager with the Levee Safety Production Center. She is responsible for managing the National Levee Inventory and Review effort and for facilitating levee safety training. Cathi is the National Levee Database program manager and is responsible for data management and levee safety tools, including outreach efforts to develop the inventory of levee systems and information with states and other stakeholders in the communities.

The webinar was well attended with over 165 participants. The presentation (pdf, 5.44 MB) is available as well as the recorded session (mp3, 10.2 MB).
