Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Question:
Why is it important to understand the risks associated with levees?

ANSWER:
Everyone should understand that no levee system provides full protection from all flood events. Even the best flood protection systems cannot completely eliminate the risk of flooding. Levee systems are designed to provide a specific level of protection, and larger flood events can cause them to be overtopped, or fail.
