Local Repairs for Federal Flood Control Projects
The Central Valley Flood Protection Board (Board) is accepting requests from local agencies under Public Law 84-99 (PL 84-99) to provide assistance for repairs to federal flood control project features damaged by the recent flood events (February 13, 2019 to February 15, 2019 and February 24, 2019 to March 1, 2019). The repair assistance applies to Butte, Tehama, Shasta, Colusa, Glenn, and Napa Counties, however if your system is located outside of these counties and experienced damages during this time, you are encouraged to apply.
USACE confirmed that local maintaining agencies (LMAs) currently eligible for PL 84-99 can apply for PL 84-99 assistance resulting from the 2019 storms. LMAs must show how their levee systems experienced unusual or significant flooding and provide adequate justification to show that the damages were sustained during the event timelines listed in USACE’s notice. In addition, if LMAs are still experiencing high water and are unable to fully assess the damaged sites, a formal request for an extension can be submitted. Requests for extension to the 30-day notice period must be submitted to the Board by June 21, 2019. See Notice to Public Sponsors dated May 23, 2019 for additional details (CLICK HERE).
