Reducing flood risk in Sacramento

Greater Sacramento, California, is among the most at-risk regions in America for catastrophic flooding, relying on an aging system of levees, weirs and bypasses and Folsom Dam to reduce its flood risk. But that system, just like a chain, is only as strong as its weakest link. Together, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, California’s Central Valley Flood Protection Board, California Department of Water Resources, and the Sacramento Area Flood Control Agency are working to modernize this system through a variety of levee improvement projects and widening the Sacramento Weir and Bypass to increase the resiliency and flexibility of the system.
