Abstract: This paper explores the history of the Dallas Floodway project, past performance of the project under various flood conditions, recently updated hydrologic and hydraulic evaluations, and ongoing engineering studies and design work in the floodway. The Dallas Floodway project, as an integral part of the Corps of Engineers' flood protection plan for the City of Dallas, must be continually monitored, maintained and updated to provide the flood protection for which it was designed, and proven that it can provide.
