CVFPB February 9, 2018 Tour – Reclamation District 108 & 787 Area

The Central Valley Flood Protection Board began its tour with briefings in Reclamation District 108’s Conference Room in Grimes, CA. Briefings included a presentation by Sustainable Conservation on how they could help, utilizing programmatic permits, projects get permitted and possibly funded more quickly.

The four other site visits looked at damage, and repair in some cases, to levees and other problems that resulted from last year’s storms and high water events, such as seepage, boils, stability issues, and a huge tree removal project.

Another briefing covered the critical need for, and construction of, the Wallace Weir Fish Rescue Facility to free the many salmon that were getting trapped in a drain. Wallace Weir Fish Rescue Facility was the last site visit on the tour.
