It Starts with Information

The National Levee Database is a dynamic, searchable inventory of information about levees, and a key resource supporting decisions and actions affecting levee safety.  It provides information about the location and condition of levees and floodwalls, displayed in an easy-to-use map interface, as well as reports, inspection summaries, and other records.  It includes detailed information about the levees in the Levee Safety Program, as well as a growing library of available information on levees outside of the USACE program.

Using the Database

The map-based interface is easy to use.  You can enter a zip code and receive a listing of levees nearby, or see a map showing the levee and the leveed area.  You can also view the levee data in combination with other Geographic Information Systems data, including real-time data from sources such as stream gauges and weather radar.
