Another word for...

The latest adventure in my UK versus US word/terminology is levee.  Today's Nordic walking class was split up into two groups today and I was with the faster one when we discovered this difference in terminology, I said to cut left (that phrase is another one but it's more of a regional thing in the states as well) once we reached the levee (US) AKA embankment or dike (UK). Either way it's a floodbank in both countries :-)

My question is what was Led Zeppelin referring to in "When the Levee Breaks", a dam, a floodbank, or something else entirely? While pondering please enjoy this cover by Zepparella.
