Levee slides happen when the levee embankment becomes saturated, causing the slope to fail and slide down. While the slides encountered so far in the 2016 flood don’t present a significant threat to the levee’s stability, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and our partners are monitoring these sites and patrolling levees 24 hours a day as the flood crest approaches.
