In light of the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, we wanted to reach out and provide an update on our public hours and 2021 meeting schedule.

The Central Valley Flood Protection Board is closely monitoring the continued COVID-19 developments, which have created uncertainty for us all. Just like every organization, we are unsure how this will play out, for how long, and how it will affect our upcoming meetings.

In order to protect our employees and the public while still providing essential services, as of February 1, 2021 we are taking the following steps:

  • Public Counter Hours are currently limited until further notice, but the Board remains open for business. Administrative staff will be in the office on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We ask that members of the public please be sure to coordinate with our staff to deliver any physical applications they have on these days. We can be contacted by phone or email as noted below.
  • The December 10, 2021 Board Workshop will be held on WebEx.  For further details check our December 10th event page. Instructions on how to join the Meeting are below. (December 10th, 2021 Board Meeting Agenda)
  • Past recordings can be viewed on the CVFPB YouTube Channel
  • Background for agenda items is available electronically. Please email the Clerk at to request an electronic copy of any agenda item.

  • We will continue to host our Board meetings, workshops, committee meetings and other programs through WebEx on an event-by-event basis to ensure the safety and health of our stakeholders, attendees and staff. Please check our website for periodic updates; we will be updating events as we confirm next steps around postponement or cancellation based on public health guidelines.

In addition:

  • Office hours are limited as most of our staff is working remotely to do our part to stem the virus’ progression. Thus, emailing us rather than calling our office with your questions is the best way to reach us. If you are currently working with a staff member on an item, please continue to contact that staff member.  If you need general information, please contact the general mailbox at
  • We will be prioritizing permits based upon health and safety factors, including the availability of staff and partners, and application processing times may be extended during this period.  Please bear with us as we work through this new system.

We appreciate your understanding during this situation.

We’re all in this together! Stay healthy and we’ll keep in touch with updates as we have them.

Executive Officer
