The City of Des Moines, the largest city in Iowa, is located just below Saylorville Dam, the Cities of Ottumwa and Keosauqua are located below Red Rock Dam, and Iowa City is located below Coralville Dam. New digital elevation data currently being developed by the State of Iowa will be utilized in conjunction with the critical infrastructure GIS database to prepare modeling and mapping products for each of the dams.

This project is being accomplished by the Corps of Engineers to prepare modeling and mapping products for each of the flood control dams. These models will be the basis for real time models designed to define major flows from the reservoirs and the potential impacts on critical infrastructures in the floodplains below each dam. Output from this study will be used by the Iowa Flood Center, FEMA and also used as part of the CWMS data.
