The brainy folks over at the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) have released a little handy outreach booklet designed to help folks living behind levees understand their risks. It’s called, appropriately, So, You Live Behind a Levee!

The 28-page booklet answers such questions as:

  • What does it mean to live behind a levee?
  • Are your home and loved ones safe from floods?
  • How much protection does the levee really provide?
  • What do you need to know to be safe?

It’s brief, well-illustrated, and well-written. Anybody living in areas with levees (and that’s an awful lot of us) ought to have a quick look.
