Why: Coordination and planning with local, state, federal agencies is crucial to protecting more than one million people and billions of dollars of critical infrastructure, businesses, agriculture, and personal property that are at risk of flooding in the Central Valley. Climate change is exacerbating this risk and planning is key. The Central Valley Flood Protection Plan is the State’s fiscal and strategic framework for reducing flood risk in the vulnerable Central Valley.
