ABSTRACT

Missouri River Flood 2011 Vulnerabilities Assessment Report Volume I: Summary   [open pdf - 569KB]

"The 'Missouri River Flood 2011 Vulnerabilities Assessment' report is presented in two volumes. Volume I provides a summary of the flood event, overview of the system and flood damages, description of actions necessary to return the system to pre-flood condition and operability, and recommendations for reducing future flood risks. Volume II contains a detailed technical assessment of the flood risk reduction infrastructure, its performance during the flood event, flood damages and post-flood repairs, and recommendations for mid- and longer-term actions needed to address the remaining vulnerabilities. Volume II also addresses vulnerabilities along tributaries to the mainstem Missouri, which may predate the 2011 flood, in order to give a holistic basin perspective. The technical volume also considers social and economic impacts, water management operations, the ecosystem, Tribal and cultural resources, and communications and outreach. Both the summary report and technical assessment focus on the Corps of Engineers' missions as authorized by Congress, although some non-Corps infrastructure and local policies and regulations are also discussed. These documents were authored by Corps of Engineers' technical experts, who were directly involved with the 2011 flood event."
