When a community with an existing accredited levee is being remapped and would like for their levee system to be depicted as accredited on the new map, the levee owner must provide the proper documentation to demonstrate that it still meets at least the minimum Federal requirements. To assist owners who cannot provide FEMA with the required professional engineer-certified data and/or documentation to show the levee continues to provide protection from at least the base flood, FEMA established the Provisionally Accredited Levee (PAL) designation to facilitate the levee accreditation process. This fact sheet provides information about PALs.
