The San Joaquin Area Flood Control
Agency's mission is to study, plan and
implement flood protection projects to
reduce the risk of flooding to people,
structures, and our community's
economy. We partner with local, State
and Federal interests to coordinate
levee improvement efforts.
Recently, SJAFCA completed Provisionally
Accredited Levee (PAL) documentation to satisfy
FEMA's levee accreditation for Fourteen Mile
Slough levee segment P124; Shima Tract levee
segments P375, P378, and P379; Calaveras River
levee segments P140, P356, P357, P359, P454 and
P1401; and Walker Slough levee segment P268.
SJAFCA assisted Reclamation District 404 with
their PAL documentation by providing the
interior drainage analysis.
SJAFCA also completed a Conditional Letter of
Map Revision for the Smith Canal Closure
Structure project to eliminate the flood plain
created by the de-accreditation of Smith Canal
