Dear all,

ESRI provides a very nice FloodPlanning toolkit which i found here:
Download + Description

In general, the tools are working pretty well, but i have one question regarding the calculation of the levee costs.
When i do create a levee and enter the values for height, width (bottom/top), slope, etc. the estimated budget costs are calculated.
After incresing the height of the levee, the budget costs goes down. After increasing the height of the levee to an unbelieveable number, the levee gets incredible cheap. How is it possible? Is my way of thinking correct?

Attached you'll find two screenshots with the same entered values but different height, which show the calculated results as well.

Is somebody able to explain the different results?

Best regards,
