Description:
Abstract:
The data contained in this dataset is a synthesis of existing information on levees in the State of Washingon. The shapefiles displayed attempt to depict levee centerlines as accurately as possible. Primary data sources include the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Federal Emergency Management Agency, In addition to these sources, inputs from local levee managers were used to augment the aforementioned sources.
Purpose:
The purpose of this dataset is to provide a comprehensive view of the location, and when available, conditions, of levees at the statewide level.
Supplemental_Information:
Data was derived from disparate sources such as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineer Seattle, Portland, and Walla Walla districts, FEMA Region X, FEMA Map Service Center, as well as local floodplain manager input. Due to the varied nature of these disparate sources, a wide array of attributes have been synthesized into the current dataset. The equivalent information/attributes were not always available between data sources. Thus, not all levees display information for all attributes.
