Categorizing Levees using GIS
Track: Water Resources
Authors: Sheng Tan, Dan Matthies, Cheng Soo
The Alameda County Flood Control & Water Conservation District is faced with the operation and maintenance of a large flood control system east of San Francisco Bay.
The District teamed with Wood Rodgers and developed a complex GIS solution using existing hydrology and hydraulic models, LIDAR and raster analysis to confidently
categorize over 120 miles of levees that participate in the flood control system currently in place. This solution will help the District prioritize levee repairs.
