Urban Levee Design Criteria

California Department of Water Resources (DWR), | May 15, 2012
Summary

The Urban Levee Design Criteria (ULDC) provides engineering criteria and guidance for the design, evaluation, operation, and maintenance of levees and floodwalls that provide an urban level of flood protection (i.e., 200-year level of flood protection) in California, as well as for determining design water surface elevations (DWSE) along leveed and unleveed streams.

Other topics beyond design and evaluation are presented to provide reasonable assurance that once a levee or floodwall is found to provide an urban level of flood protection, it will continue to do so.
