Tolerable risk for levees
This guide represents a summary of a workshop, held in 2010, to "examine the concepts and principles of tolerability of risk and tolerable risk guidelines (TRG) and to explore their application to, and use in, managing lifesafety, economic, and environmental risk associated with levee systems." TRG is a tool that can to be used to explain and characterize (risk communication) the significance of risk estimates, and it may be used to prioritize among options and to evaluate their urgency for action (risk management).
