Class Code: 6045

Per NCCI's Scopes Code Description:

Code 6045 is assigned to the construction of levees, usually conducted some distance back from the river’s edge, to prevent the overflow of rivers where the principal operations involve earthmoving or placing including clearing of land, excavation, filling, grading, etc., involving the use of earthmoving equipment such as draglines, graders, scrapers, bulldozers, dump trucks, etc. In addition, the levee slopes are seeded and, in some cases, are paved in part with asphalt, concrete, soil, cement, etc. The use of the latter type paving was introduced into the levee construction projects through the years as a means of strengthening the levee and to provide adequate protection against erosion at a reasonable cost. It also results in considerable savings as the use of paving material makes possible the use of steeper and higher slopes at little extra cost and reduces future maintenance costs.

Please refer to Code 5403 for extra-territorial premium determination guidelines that may be applicable to insureds that have operations outside their headquarters’ state.
