Army Corps: Teamwork Needed To Manage Coastal Flood Risk

Posted:
MD/DE/VA (AP) - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says managing the flooding risk along the North Atlantic coast from events like Superstorm Sandy has to be done in tandem among all levels of government and the private sector.

The Corps on Wednesday put out a framework to help that collaboration as part of a two-year study covering 31,000 miles of coastline along 10 states.

The director of the Corps' National Planning Center for Coastal Storm Risk Management says "we're all going to have to make some tough choices."

The study assessed the states' coastlines for vulnerabilities. It offers some mitigation strategies but doesn't make any firm recommendations. It says those decisions should be made in collaboration.
