Abstract : This report presents the results of a study of Corps of Engineers involvement in nonstructural flood control alternatives. It concentrates on flood proofing and floodplain evacuation, the two alternatives implementable by the Corps that are capable of reducing existing flood damages. Its notes that the Corps has recommended and undertaken very few nonstructural projects to date. Prospects for future involvement are poor. Five major conclusions are drawn and recommendations made to effect changes in policy and procedures. (Author)
