2 Levee Repair Design Santa Maria, CA

3 Partnerships Overview Levee owners face an environment of shifting regulatory, legal and design standards. Combine this with aging infrastructure and climate variability, and you have a multitude of competing challenges and risks to manage. When levee owners need responsive, professional services, they turn to HDR. With experience in all aspects of levee planning, design, construction and rehabilitation, our staff can represent your interests with comprehensive project services that conform to federal, state and local requirements. HDR is a leader in helping our clients make risk-informed decisions. Partnerships At HDR, we approach levee project challenges from the owner s perspective. We maintain cooperative and effective relationships through membership and participation in the following organizations: Association of State Dam Safety Officials Association of State Floodplain Managers Floodplain Management Association National Association of Flood & Stormwater Management Agencies National Committee on Levee Safety National Water Resources Association Responsibility HDR understands the weight of responsibility that comes with being a levee owner. Our risk management framework provides risk-based data and information to levee owners, recognizing that major decisions need to be transparent and defendable.

4 Portland District Levee Inspections Deer Island, OR Periodic Inspection Services HDR supports the mission of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and local sponsors by providing levee system inspections and operation and maintenance manual updates. Detailed inspection services include: Levee embankments Interior drainage structures Pump stations Flood walls Operation and maintenance manuals Emergency supplies and equipment Flood preparation and training HDR assists with the entire inspection process from project administration to post-processing the acquired data. Certification and Accreditation Services Both federal and non-federal levee owners face the challenging task of pursuing levee certification in order to participate in the National Flood Insurance Program. However, many levee systems cannot be certified and accredited in accordance with 44 CFR New guidelines allow for the detailed assignment of flood risks from non-accredited levee systems. HDR provides levee owners a trusted partner to navigate the complexities of the certification process. New York District Levee Inspections North Adams, MA Levee Problem Identification West Sacramento, CA

5 Recreation Planning for a New Levee East Grand Forks, MN Permitting, Compliance and Design Services U.S. Army Corps of Engineers regulations and guidance under Sections 33 CFR 408 and 208 are triggered when a project requires alterations to a federally-authorized flood control system. These can include bridges, utilities, pump stations and other encroachments to the levee prism. Levee owners or project proponents contemplating modifications or work in and around levee systems then are faced with applying for approval from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Levee Surveillance IA and NE HDR leads and guides our clients through these rigorous review processes to secure approval of levee modifications. Among the issues addressed include: Risk analysis/residual risk Geotechnical evaluation Structural evaluation Hydraulics and hydrology Operation and maintenance Water control Real estate Environmental protection Coastal zones HDR also provides a full line of services to address the more traditional environmental review and permitting process.

6 Inundation Modeling Evaluations Omaha, NE Emergency Management and Response Services Disasters strike.
