ST. LOUIS, Mo. - Woolpert announced that it was recently awarded multi-million dollar project by the St. Louis Corps of Engineers to survey approximately 640 miles of levees in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming and Montana as part of the National Levee Database (NLD) project.

Under Congress’s direction, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) created the NLD in an effort to locate and document the condition of existing levees under federal jurisdiction. When completed, the database will include critical information about the safety of all 14,000 miles of levees within the USACE program and will assist other agencies in activities related to floodplain management.

As one of the premier contractors for the NLD project, Woolpert has been performing work for the database over the past two years and has surveyed over 2,500 miles of levees for the Kansas City, Omaha, St. Paul, New Orleans, Seattle, Portland and Walla Walla districts.

“The National Levee Database program is an essential component to the safety of the U.S. levees,” said Matt Schrader, COE practice leader for Woolpert’s Geospatial division. “We realize the work we’re performing on this project is crucial to the database as a whole, and we’re proud to provide our continued support to the Corps of Engineers.”
