Corps Seeks Public Comment for Kansas Levee Study

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in the Kansas City District has studied flood risk management and reliability improvements for the existing levee unit in Manhattan, KS.

The study conducted by request and cooperation of the sponsor of the levee was used to determine whether one or more plans for improvements to reduce flood risk and improve levee reliability to the existing levee unit is technically viable, economically feasible, and environmentally acceptable.

The Corps is currently seeking review and public comment on the information presented within the Draft Feasibility Report (DFR).  The DFR identifies a combination of measures as the Corps’ overall recommended plan and presents an analysis of the costs and impacts associated with the alternatives.
