First Major 5-Year CVFPP Update Released
The Central Valley Flood Protection Board (CVFPB) recently released its 2017 Flood Protection Plan Update.
The Central Valley Flood Protection Plan (CVFPP) is a strategic and long-range plan for improving flood risk management in the Central Valley.
Prepared by the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) in accordance with the Central Valley Flood Protection Act of 2008 (Act) and adopted by the Central Valley Flood Protection Board (CVFPB) in June 2012, the CVFPP guides the state’s participation in managing flood risk in areas protected by the State Plan of Flood Control (SPFC).
The Draft 2017 CVFPP Update is the first major 5-year update to the CVFPP in accordance with the Act.
It updates and refines the overall near- and long-term investment needs established in the 2012 CVFPP, and includes recommendations on policies and funding to support comprehensive flood risk management actions.
Comments on the 2017 CVFPP Update will be accepted through March 31, 2017.
