Cache Creek flood solution top priority for Woodland council

From The Daily Democrat – Flood solutions in the past have called for a levee or “flood wall,” capable of holding back rising waters from a 100- or 200-year flood event, something so rare it could occur only once every 100- to 200 years. The problem is where the diverted water would go. In 2004, farmers were fearful any levee would hold the water back, leaving it on their land. They wanted a solution that would effectively channel floodwaters into the Yolo Bypass. Woodland is now working with engineers and the Army Corps to prepare a plan that would do that, although it is still in the formative stages. The cost of any final solution is expected to be in the millions of dollars, not including the actual design of a structure along with the preparation of state- and federal studies. (more)
