United States Army Corps of Engineers, 2012

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ dam and levee safety programs use a risk informed approach to make investment decisions, communicate the benefits and risks of the infrastructure, and work with stakeholders when solutions are required. Risk concepts bring together information from infrastructure design, construction, operations, analytical techniques, and experienced-based expert judgment, to answer key questions regarding priorities, urgency of action, and type of action. Risk information complements traditional engineering approaches and enables USACE to assess changes over time.
