The “Forgotten Flood of 1940,” and a review of the Draft 2017 Update to the Central Valley Flood Protection Plan.
Ms. Cait Plantaric will make a presentation on the 1940 flood which inundated much of the Sacramento Valley. The extents of the 1940 flooding was even greater than the 1986 and 1997 floods, but the 1940 flood and its impact have largely been forgotten. Also, representatives from the Department of Water Resources and the Central Valley Flood Protection Board will present an overview of the 2017 Update to the Central Valley Flood Protection Plan, and the schedule for its adoption.
To follow is the State’s announcement on the availability of the draft plan, deadline for comments, and links to plan documents:
The Draft 2017 Update to the Central Valley Flood Protection Plan (CVFPP) is available for public review. Prepared in accordance with the Central Valley Flood Protection Act of 2008, the CVFPP is a strategic and long-range plan for improving flood risk management in the Central Valley, and incorporates work done through regional planning efforts.
DWR has also prepared a Draft Supplemental Program Environmental Impact Report (Supplemental PEIR) for the 2017 CVFPP Update. In accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act, the CVFPP PEIR (adopted June 2012) evaluated potential environmental impacts and mitigation measures. DWR evaluated each of these resources for potential changes based on the 2017 CVFPP Update.
Electronic versions of the Draft 2017 CVFPP Update and Draft Supplemental PEIR, as well as supporting documents and related materials, are available at cvfpb.ca.gov/cvfpp/.
