Description
Corps of Engineers policy regarding repairs to levee systems and flood control projects damaged by floods is as follows:

  1. Federally constructed, locally maintained flood control systems active in the Public Law 84-99 program will be rehabilitated to pre disaster condition by the Corps of Engineers at 100 percent federal cost. Prospective repairs require a letter of request from sponsor and funding by Congress.
  2. Non-federally constructed, locally maintained systems, active in the Public Law 84-99 program, will be repaired by the Corps of Engineers to pre disaster condition at 80 percent federal/20 percent local cost share. Prospective repairs require a letter of request from sponsor and funding by Congress.
  3. Federally constructed or enhanced, locally maintained systems AND non-federally constructed or enhanced, locally maintained systems not active in the Public Law 84-99 program are not eligible for repairs by the Corps of Engineers.
  4. Active status in the Rehabilitation and Inspection program is determined by Continuing Eligibility Inspection ratings.

NOTE: Repairs can only be made to pre-disaster conditions. Public Law 84-99 funds are not authorized for improvements or enhancements.

Repair Authorization under PL 84-99 Program (Public Law 84-99; Flood and Coastal Storm Emergencies): Levee systems and/or flood control projects are authorized for repairs, if damaged by a flood event, when the levee system is active in the Corps' PL 84-99 program. To be included in the PL 84-99 program, a levee system or flood control project must be routinely inspected by the Corps of Engineers and found to meet Corps of Engineers construction standards and are maintained in a fashion that does not deter from its structural integrity.

Status
Hager Slough Special Drainage District Levee and Coal Creek Drainage and Levee District Levee are currently being repaired to pre-disaster conditions under PL 84-99 Authority. Completion of these projects is expected in FY18.
