Sand boils are the result of underseepage, which occurs when pressure from flooding pushes water through the sandy soils beneath a levee to the surface on the land side. These boils are small, and far enough away from the levee to not create much risk, but the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ geotechnical engineers, emergency management teams and levee patrols are on duty 24/7 to monitor these and other issues that arise from flooding.
