05 July 2012 New Flood Plan Benefits All Posted by: Kelly Catlett | Leave a comment | Share: Defenders of Wildlife joined with several organizations to encourage California’s Central Valley Flood Protection Board to adopt an ambitious new flood plan that establishes a road map for flood management throughout California’s Central Valley for the coming century. Incorporating measures that prioritize access to original flood plains, the plan will eventually allow the Central Valley’s two major rivers to have a little wiggle room and will keep communities safer. The plan focuses on multi-benefit projects designed to allow several simultaneous uses such as recreation, habitat restoration, agricultural preservation, and clean water. If done correctly, this plan can provide improved conditions for both people and wildlife. For more information about the flood plan and flood protection board, check out the Flood Protection Board’s website. Learn more about Defenders’ work on the plan at dotWild, our experts’ blog.
