In 2008, the City of Van Buren and Crawford County Levee District faced the need to certify more than 22 miles of levee and floodwall according to FEMA criteria within the next year. Freese and Nichols, teamed with McClelland Consulting Engineers, was retained to meet the necessary FEMA levee certification requirements in a timely and cost-effective manner. Freese and Nichols provided the engineering analyses and reviews and demonstrated that the levee was in compliance with FEMA criteria, while meeting the deadline. The report has subsequently been accepted by FEMA.
