Risk Analysis for Flood Damage Reduction Projects (Course Number: 33RBA01A)
Location:  Davis, CA
US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE)

Davis, CA

The course presents current policy and technical procedures for conducting a planning study for the evaluation of alternatives for typical flood risk management projects such as levees, channels, and reservoirs. Included are lectures and case studies describing procedures for determining uncertainty in discharge-frequency, stage-discharge, and stage-damage relationships for various project site characteristics and how they are used for the risk assessment portion of a planning study. Procedures for conducting Monte Carlo simulations for evaluating project performance and size are described. Concepts and procedures are demonstrated and practiced in classroom workshops using current desktop software. Current Corps policy related to risk assessment in planning studies is also discussed. Project function focuses on typical features associated with riverine flood risk management projects. Requirements for levee certification are also presented. Examples and case studies illustrate potential problems and solutions.

This course presents risk concepts and assessment methods required by current Corps guidance for the planning of flood risk management projects, and is intended for persons who are presently or will soon be actively involved in the formulation and evaluation of flood risk management alternatives for planning studies. The course emphasizes policy issues, statistical analysis concepts, and the implementation of risk assessment and uncertainty methods for sizing and evaluating flood risk management projects. The course objective is to enable participants to readily adapt the methods to specific studies after successfully completion of the course.

Prerequisites: Nominees for the course should have a minimum of two years experience in the hydrologic, hydraulic, economic, or plan formulation aspects of flood risk management projects. Managerial and supervisory personnel are encouraged to attend. Nominees must be assigned (a) Occupational Series: Selected 0000-0100, 0800, and 1300; (b) Grade: GS-09 or above.
