Flood Risk Management

Welcome

Welcome to the National Economic Development (NED) Procedures Manual for Flood Risk Management. This web-based manual makes use of a vast array of flood damage reduction resources and it offers access to a variety of media. It enables you, the reader, to go as deeply as you like into a topic or to merely skim its surface. It is a much more active sort of document than a traditional manual.

Hardcopy manuals have generally been written to be read linearly from start to finish. It is likely that no two readers will ever follow the same path through this manual. Some will read all the content and click every link, pursuing the links until they are satisfied, others will pursue the links until there are no more links to pursue. Some will work with the sample computation files that have been attached. Others will study the Microsoft PowerPoint® slides, a number will replay the audio files. Several links lead to some wonderfully informative animations. In short, this web-published Procedures Manual offers a portal to more flood damage reduction information than any one person will ever need. So welcome to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' NED Procedures Manual and the web’s world of flood damage reduction! A pdf version of the complete manual can be downloaded here (pdf, 3.5 MB).
