Meetings & Workshops
The National Committee on Levee Safety presented its findings and 20 recommendations for a National Levee Safety Program in a draft Report to Congress in January 2009.
Understanding the role levees play today and communicating the importance of a national approach to improving levee safety is one step toward achieving the NCLS's vision of "an involved public and reliable levee systems working as part of an integrated approach to protect people and property from floods."
To that end, the NCLS continues to discuss the need for a national levee safety program and gather stakeholder input through regional workshops and information sessions and presentations at national conferences. The Committee also continues to meet, approximately quarterly, to develop a strategic plan for implementing a National Levee Safety Program.
