Abstract:

A workshop on Risk-based Analysis for Flood Damage Reduction Studies was held on 20-22 October 1997 at the Asilomar Conference Center in Pacific Grove, CA. Policy issues, case example applications of procedures, a risk-based analysis computer program, and levee certification criteria for regulatory flood plain management actions were covered in the sessions. The workshop provided a forum for exchange of ideas and perspectives on ongoing risk-based analysis for flood damage reduction studies. It also provided an opportunity to assess the progress made since the Montecello, MN. Riverine Levee Freeboard Workshop, held in 1991. The objectives of the workshop were to 1 review the present policy and procedures for performing risk-based analysis studies 2 identify key issues and discuss their means of resolution and 3 define and discuss Corps procedures and requirements for levee certification. The workshop proceedings are contained herein.
