FEMA has released Evaluation and Monitoring of Seepage and Internal Erosion (FEMA P-1032) to the public
Tuesday, July 28, 2015

FEMA has released Evaluation and Monitoring of Seepage and Internal Erosion (FEMA P-1032) to the public. This technical manual, sponsored by the Interagency Committee on Dam Safety (ICODS), investigates the internal erosion occurring at embankment dams and levees, and how it poses a threat of failure and potential risk to public safety.

Recognizing the threat internal erosion through and under embankments poses, the manual provides procedures and guidance for "best practices" concerning the evaluation and monitoring of seepage and internal erosion. It also outlines possible emergency response actions for short-term risk reduction and long-term mitigation approaches based on federal agency practice.

Overall, the document aims to summarize the vast body of information available on seepage and internal erosion, and disseminate this information to dam safety practitioners, specifically personnel familiar with embankment dams and levees.

The U.S. Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Reclamation, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, Natural Resources Conservation Service, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and FEMA allocated significant resources to make the development of this manual possible.

FEMA P-1032 is available online in the FEMA Library and will also be available for order via CD from the FEMA Publication Warehouse.
