February 2017 brought an unusually high number of atmospheric rivers with high levels of precipitation, high snow levels, flooding and high water levels to much of the state, causing State-Federal Flood Operations to activate an emergency response that lasted for over 4 months. Responders were activated from the Department of Water Resources, Central Valley Flood Protection Board, National Weather Service, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, State-Federal Flood Operations Center, Flood Fight Specialists and Inspectors out in the field, the five 20-member Incident Command Teams assigned to specific regions of California, and other agencies. CVFPB wished to acknowledge those emergency responders and their efforts on behalf of public safety. A resolution of gratitude and appreciation was presented at CVFPB’s July 28th board meeting.
