Levees

Half a century. That’s the average age of levees across the U.S. And most were built using now outdated standards for durability and safety. We’ve spent the last 100 years designing, building, and inspecting thousands of dams and levees to ensure structural and operational excellence. Our deep skills in levee system investigation, analysis, design, construction, and risk management helps you make cost-effective, risk-based decisions while meeting current and future safety challenges.

Our Expertise

We provide responsive, professional levee system services in the areas of investigation, evaluation, design, construction and operation, pump stations, flood walls, closure structures, and hydraulic control structures. We also understand the complexities of the levee certification process and evaluate levee systems for compliance with requirements of the National Flood Insurance Program and other governing agencies. These comprehensive, cost-effective solutions help clients navigate the regulatory environment and make informed decisions to manage risk and the myriad of challenges communities face with their aging levee system infrastructure.
