The $529M KC Levees program is one of the largest, most complex, Civil Works project that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers – Kansas City District has delivered. The program will improve the reliability and resiliency of 17 miles of levees and floodwalls located along the Kansas River in the Kansas City metropolitan area. This collaborative effort between the USACE and three non-federal partners – the Kaw Valley Drainage District of Wyandotte County, Kansas; the Unified Government of Wyandotte County and Kansas City, Kansas; and the City of Kansas City, Missouri – will reduce the risk of flooding by approximately 200% for 30,000 people, over $10B of investments, and a nationally critical warehousing, distribution, and railroad hub. This presentation will highlight USACE’s mission to reduce flood risk along our Nation’s waterways, present why and how USACE is further reducing flood risk to Kansas City, and provide insight into techniques utilized to ensure successful delivery of this critical project to the community.
