Greendale-Lawrenceburg Levee

Greendale, Indiana

The City of Greendale and the Lawrenceburg Conservancy District collaborated to modify an abandoned railroad embankment so it would serve as a flood control structure near the Ohio River. American Structurepoint determined the most cost-effective approach would be a riverside enlargement of the 1.5-mile embankment that protects 450 acres. The project design incorporated measures to reduce through-seepage, minimize leakage, reduce foundation underseepage, provide sufficient shear strength to handle all loading conditions, incur minimal settlement ensuring the design crest elevation is maintained, and resist erosion from wave action and flow forces.
