Description:
A levee, levée, dike (or dyke), embankment, floodbank or stopbank is a natural or artificial slope or wall to regulate water levels. It is usually earthen and often parallel to the course of a river or the coast. (Henry Petroski (2006). Levees and Other Raised Ground. 94. American Scientist. pp. 7-11) This layer represents levees in Iowa. This dataset was derived from USGS Topo Sheets, LiDAR data, Aerial photography, coverage made in a post 1993-flood study, and the National Levee Database.
