2015 Levee Rehabilitation

"Notice To Public Sponsors" for Rehabilitation Assistance for Flood-Damaged Flood Control Projects

The Corps of Engineers has authority under Public Law 84-99 to supplement local efforts in the repair of both Federal (Corps-constructed, locally operated and maintained) and non-Federal (constructed by non-Federal interests) flood control projects damaged by flood, in accordance with conditions described in the notice to public sponsors.

Public Sponsors of flood control projects that sustained damages due to flooding since June 18, 2015 may apply for Public Law 84-99 Rehabilitation Assistance from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Louis District. If you believe your flood control project may qualify and would like to request Rehabilitation Assistance, you must submit a written request to the Corps of Engineers in accordance with and at the address in the notice to public sponsors. Please provide the information requested in the notice and return it back by September 4, 2015.

Damages that may be considered for rehabilitation assistance include physical damage to the existing levee cross-section, damage to levee drainage structures, and loss of sod cover. The Corps of Engineers does not pay for drainage ditch restoration, debris removal, or activities that would be considered normal operation and maintenance. The purpose of rehabilitation assistance is to repair or restore a flood control structure to its pre­ disaster condition.

If you have any questions, you should call 314-331-8255 or 314-331-8282.
