Summary: Heavy rains from December 27, 2004, through January 11, 2005, eroded approximately 10,000 linear feet (LF) of a protective levee and its channel maintenance road and access gate. The Applicant requested $4,322 through Project Worksheet (PW) 2645 for permanent repairs. FEMA denied the Applicants request because the facility met the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) definition of a flood control work (FCW).
The Applicant submitted its first appeal on November 3, 2005. The Applicant stated that the facility is not an FCW. The Deputy Regional Director denied the appeal on April 18, 2007 because FCWs are ineligible for permanent work.
The Applicant submitted its second appeal on June 18, 2007. The Applicant submitted a letter from USACE dated June 9, 2005, which states that the facility is not an FCW and should be classified as other water control.
Issues: Is the facility an FCW?
Rationale: Response and Recovery Policy 9524.3, Rehabilitation Assistance for Levees and Other Flood Control Works
