The Central Valley Flood Protection Board is set to adopt the 2017 update to the Central Valley Flood Protection Plan (CVFPP) at its meeting Friday, Aug. 25, in Sacramento.

Since its adoption by the Board in 2012, the CVFPP has guided California’s flood risk management and investments to improve emergency preparedness and response capabilities, increase critical flood protection in vulnerable Central Valley communities, and address maintenance deficiencies in the flood system. This first five-year update to the plan incorporates the latest information about system wide and regional flood management needs, advancements in the best available science, a robust investment strategy and recommendations for continued implementation of the CVFPP.
