Interagency Levee Task Force
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is leading the development of a collaborative regional approach to the long-term restoration of flood management systems damaged by the Midwest Floods of June 2008. The Corps is working with the Federal Emergency Management Agency and other federal, state and local agencies to assemble a Regional Interagency Levee Task Force (ILTF) to provide a uniform approach across the region impacted by the Midwest floods.
The task force is an umbrella organization designed to look at flood plain management at a regional level and includes representatives from federal and state agencies.
Interagency Levee Work Groups will operate in state Joint Field Offices to review assistance requests from local entities, evaluate non-structural alternatives (creation of expanded floodways and ecosystems), and participate in the levee restoration process.
This web site provides information about how the ILTF operates, how to apply for assistance, schedules of agency meetings and reports, and how to contact the ILTF Joint Field Office. We want to provide you with the tools and opportunities necessary for a successful recovery program. What we ask of you is to consider your vision for flood-prone properties...for now and for the future.
