ForensisGroup Levee Expert Witnesses are involved with the design construction, inspection, and investigation of these engineering barriers placed between waterways and habitation or farmland. They have expertise in flood plains, water flow, and waterside surface of levees, which are frequently covered with layers of rocks or “riprap” to protect against erosion. They also inspect levee for vegetation that decreases channel flow, problems with flood management, both issues of recent litigation.
These experts investigate levee failures and over-topping. Many have testified in hearings and lawsuits involving the Army Corps of Engineers, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and levee boards. They are called upon to testify that the levee meets current design, construction, maintenance, and operation standards to provide protection from the possibility of flood. Many have worked on projects that involve environmental engineering, erosion, sand transport, shore protection devices, soils engineering, and water elevation. Some have extensive experience in the field of environmental remediation, specializing in hydrogeology.
