Will the AHS improve water management and help in flood control? Will it help to alleviate flooding?

The AHS does not alleviate flooding.  Any properties that currently flood will continue to flood and those properties that are required to carry flood insurance will continue to have this requirement.  Sea lamprey barrier management was designed and evaluated to be effective when the flood levels are slightly lower than the existing flood levels in order to show effectiveness without harmful interference on properties. The potential reduction in flood levels is insignificant.
