Public Law 84-99 Levees in the Rock Island District

The Public Law (P.L.) 84-99 program provides reimbursement for specific damages to levees in the program resulting from high-water events. The program is a partnered solution to flood damage similar to hazard insurance that you may have on your house. Maintenance and proper operation of the levee prevents routine damages and reduces the possibility of levee failure. Enrolled levee sponsors that are in the program and provide levee maintenance to a standard level that is acceptable to the Corps receive post-damage assistance in the case of flood-related levee damage to a properly maintained levee.

Levees are either federally constructed and enhanced in cooperation with a local sponsor then turned over to the local sponsor to own and operate, or are non-federally constructed or enhanced and owned and operated by a local sponsor.  Federally designed and constructed levees are enrolled at the end of construction; Non-Federally constructed levees have to apply and be accepted into the Public Law 84-99 program. In the Rock Island District, the sponsor is responsible for the operation, maintenance, repair and replacement of the levee in both cases.

On March 21, 2014 the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers released interim policy guidance for determining eligibility status of Flood Damage Reduction Systems in the Public Law (PL) 84-99 Rehabilitation and Inspection Program.  This interim policy changes the way PL 84-99 Rehabilitation and Inspection Program eligibility is determined for Flood Damage Reduction Systems. Eighteen line items in the USACE Flood Damage Reduction System inspection report have been identified as the criteria that will be used to determine P.L. 84-99 eligibility.  These line items are referred to as the interim eligibility inspection criteria.  Any line item rating of Unacceptable, “U,” on any one of the eighteen inspection items will generate an inactive status in the P.L. 84-99 Rehabilitation and Inspection Program.  Line item ratings of Minimally Acceptable “M”, Acceptable “A”, or Not Applicable “N/A” on all the eighteen line items will generate an active status in PL 84-99.

The following is a list of levees currently enrolled in the Rock Island District's Public Law 84-99 Rehabilitation and Inspection Program and the current inspection results.

NOTE: The Rock Island District assigns our flood-area engineers to geographical areas to provide communities with flood-fight support and assistance during high-water events; therefore, levee systems are listed within their geographic boundary.

Periodic Inspections

When Periodic Inspections are complete and Corps, sponsor, agency, local, state and federal coordination has occurred, the Periodic Inspection Reports' Executive Summary is available at nld.usace.army.mil (Advanced Report, then NLD Media). Note - the rating provided in the Executive Summary may not be accurate due to a subsequent routine inspection rating.
