National Levee Safety

These web pages present a history of the work of the National Committee on Levee Safety, including a record of meetings, workshops, information sessions, and testimony before Congress.

Workshops and Information Sessions

The National Committee on Levee Safety met during an intense period between October 2008 and January 2009 to develop its findings and 20 recommendations for a National Levee Safety Program. These were presented in a draft Report to Congress in January 2009.

Since their earliest meetings, the NCLS has reached out to get feedback and suggestions for implementation of a National Levee Safety Program.
