Abstract: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Kansas City District, has prepared this Environmental Assessment (EA) to evaluate the potential impacts associated with the recommended plan to provide flood risk management for the City of Topeka, Kansas. The Topeka Flood Risk Management Study is located at the confluence of Soldier Creek and the Kansas River, and is a unit of the Kansas River Basin System. The levee units in Topeka that are proposed for modifications in this plan are: South Topeka Unit, Waterworks Unit, Oakland Unit, and North Topeka Unit. The Auburndale and Soldier Creek units were studied for deficiencies in the early phase of the project. However, there were no deficiencies found; therefore, no work has been proposed for these units. The purpose of the recommended plan is to increase the reliability of the flood risk management system for the City of Topeka. The purpose of the recommended plan is to correct existing geotechnical and structural weaknesses and increase the reliability of the flood risk management system for the City of Topeka. The recommended plan is needed to reduce the risk to the local population from flooding due to levee failure and maintain the performance of the system as originally authorized and intended by Congress.
