Abstract : This report brings together engineering, economic, and environmental information and analyzes a wide range of structural and nonstructural measures for their merit in reducing flood damages at East Grand Forks. Levees were identified as the only structural measure capable of significantly reducing flood damages at East Grand Forks. The report recommends detailed design studies of a plan which includes levees in combination with nonstructural measures to include floodproofing, acquisition/relocation, floodplain zoning, flood warning and forecasting, flood insurance, and an emergency plan of action.
