CVFPB honors David Thomas of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) on his retirement and for his accomplishments at Folsom Dam that will greatly improve flood protection for the area

At the Central Valley Flood Protection Board’s November Board Meeting, the Board presented a resolution of appreciation to David Thomas, who is retiring from the USACE. Mr. Thomas directed the last three phases of the Joint Federal Project at the Folsom Dam, a cooperative effort between the USACE, U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, California Department of Water Resources, the Central Valley Flood Protection Board, and the Sacramento Area Flood Control Agency to reduce flood risk for our area. Under Mr. Thomas’s directorship, the project was successfully completed years ahead of schedule, and at a much lower cost than expected. Congratulations Mr. Thomas….and thank you!
