Abstract:

This manual provides criteria for the design of landscape plantings and vegetation maintenance at floodwalls, levees, and embankment dams. It is intended as a guide for uniformly safe design and not as a restriction to the initiative of the designer. This manual encourages close coordination between the design team members, which include a civil engineer, environmental engineer, biologist, and landscape architect.
