Supplemental Policy Guidance for the USACE 26 September 2006 Policy Guidance for Prioritization of FY 07 Inspection of Completed Works (ICW) Operations & Maintenance, General (O&M Gen), Mississippi River and Tributaries (MR&T) and Flood Control & Coastal Emergencies Inspection Accounts
FEMA and USACE are coordinating closely on levee issues. On September 26, 2006, USACE issued policy guidance for inspection of levee systems in USACE programs. On January 18, 2007, USACE issued supplemental guidance for the inspection of levee systems. The purpose of this guidance is to provide a one-time only “maintenance deficiency correction period” of 1 year, to allow public sponsors of levee projects time to correct maintenance deficiencies before a project is placed in an "inactive" status in the USACE Rehabilitation and Inspection Program and becomes ineligible for Public Law 84-99 rehabilitation assistance.
