National Flood Risk Management: Levee Safety Summit

National Flood Risk Management Levee Safety Summit

February 26-27, 2008

St. Louis, Missouri
Adam's Mark Hotel by the Arch

Flood risk managers, levee owners, and colleagues participated in a critical "National Flood Risk Management -- Levee Safety Summit", February 26-27, 2008. This timely meeting took place at the Adam's Mark Hotel in downtown St. Louis, Missouri, hosted by the Association of State Floodplain Managers (ASFPM) and the National Association of Flood and Stormwater Management Agencies (NAFSMA). The objectives of this meeting were to solicit broad feedback from and provide updates to local, state, regional, and federal officials and the private sector on vital national flood risk management policies currently under consideration at the Federal level, particularly by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Key issues that were addressed included levee certification/decertification, levee operations and maintenance, vegetation management, flood insurance and mapping issues, and residual flood risk in levee-protected areas. Specialized sessions on levee issues and a technical field tour of local flood loss reduction projects were offered on Monday and Thursday in addition to the two-day program.
