Louisiana Levee Safety Program

The Levee Safety Unit is reponsible to ensure that the Non-Coastal Levee Districts, and other Flood Control Entities, establish and maintain an Inspection and Evaluation Program for their flood protection system infrastructure. The Inspection and Evaluation Program is required by FEMA in order to certify that the flood protection system is capable of providing the level of protection necessary to remain eligible for federally subsidized flood insurance rates. DOTD direction and oversight is required to ensure uniformity in implementation of inspections and evaluations among all Levee Districts.
