Central Valley Flood Protection Board Receives Public Draft 2012 Central Valley Flood Protection Plan

On December 30, 2011, the Central Valley Flood Protection Board (Board) received the Public Draft 2012 Central Valley Flood Protection Plan (CVFPP) and the December 2011 Flood Control System Status Report (FCSSR) from the California Department of Water Resources (DWR). Links to the draft plan and associated documents may be found here.

DWR will present and highlight key elements of the CVFPP to the Board at its regularly scheduled meeting on January 27, 2012, when the Board will describe its process for reviewing the technical documents and accepting public comments. The meeting agenda and meeting details may be found here. California Water Code requires DWR to prepare the CVFPP and transmit it to the Board no later than January 1, 2012 for adoption on or about July 1, 2012. The law requires the CVFPP to be updated every five years.

The Board invites public comments in writing. Comments may be submitted to the Board by e-mail (to nmoricz@water.ca.gov) or by mail:
Ms. Nancy Moricz
Central Valley Flood Protection Board
3310 El Camino Avenue, Room 151
Sacramento, CA 95821
The Board will meet again on February 24, 2012, when the public will be invited to make recommendations for where the Board should focus its review of the CVFPP prior to adoption.

I confirmed that information in a phone call the Board's offices, but you may wish to follow up closer to the date of the meeting. You can reach the Board's offices at 916-574-0609. Thanks for your question.
