2015 USSD Levee Workshop

International Levee Handbook

The International Levee Handbook (ILH) provides a guide to the evaluation, design, construction, implementation, maintenance and management of levees in one single comprehensive handbook and offers international good practice on levees. The handbook has been written by a core team of experts and practitioners from the United States, Germany, Netherlands, France, UK and Ireland. The effort in the US was a collaboration among the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Department of Homeland Security, professional organizations, private consulting firms, academia, and other levee stakeholders.  Download the ILH here (www.ciria.org/ILH).

The US Levee Coalition in cooperation with the USACE presented a series of webinars on the recently published ILH. Each webinar covered a specific topic presented by lead authors of the ILH.  The webinars are brought to you by the Association of State Dam Safety Officials (ASDSO) and USACE on behalf of the Levee Coalition.   Archived webinars can be accessed here (http://www.damsafety.org/news/?p=e7c72c98-d7e6-456a-86bb-5f339de32bac).

US Levee Coalition, which currently includes ASDSO, the United States Society on Dams (USSD), the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), the National Association of Flood and Stormwater Management Agencies (NAFSMA), and the Deep Foundations Institute (DFI), fully supports and endorses the ILH. We regard the handbook as an important document in levee safety for reference in the application of international codes and manuals.
