Results of RESCON Model: The results of the RESCON model (Table 1), shows that in all the cases, SBR is greater than 1 while LTCR is up to 27%.
The low values of the LTCR, in present study, are because of wider section of the reservoir used and low discharges allowed through existing outlets.
LTCR values obtained are not quite favorable, requiring further increase of flushing discharges and lowering of water level during flushing.
As the federal lead for long-term disaster recovery, FEMA's LTCR played two major roles in the three disasters that we reviewed--facilitating the coordination of federal, state, and nongovernmental assistance for recovery and helping communities to develop long-term recovery plans.

Recommendation: As a result of insights based on the experiences of FEMA's LTCR and recognizing the administration's current efforts to develop the NDRF and improve recovery authorities and programs, the Secretary of Homeland Security, as a leader of these efforts, should evaluate and assess, as part of the new NDRF or related efforts, what would be an appropriate level of authority for the entity responsible for coordinating long-term recovery in order for it to foster effective coordination among federal agencies involved in disaster recovery and to resolve related policy and program conflicts that may arise.
