CVFPB’s Inspection Section is Up and Running!

This summer, CVFPB welcomed staff engineers Michael Gill, Doug Kennedy, and Alex Haston (pictures below) to serve as “eyes and ears” in the field and ensure threats to levee safety are addressed before they become emergencies. Once encroachment permits are issued, CVFPB inspectors ensure projects are built according to the permit conditions. Additionally, the inspectors will perform routine encroachment inspections and support our permitting, enforcement, environmental, and real estate staff in the field. From our Chief of the Inspections Section, Preston Shopbell (picture to the right): “We look forward to having you meet our new inspectors in the field, and please feel free to share your knowledge and experience of the unique conditions in your area with them.”
