Accompanying the video post is this message: "On July 31, the U.S. Army Chief of Engineers signed the Chief's Report for the Lower San Joaquin River Flood Risk Management Feasibility Study. This action forwards the study to Congress for authorization of a plan to reduce the flood risk for the residents of Stockton by raising and strengthening levees and constructing erosion control and other features. The Corps has already received some funding for pre-construction, engineering and design and we are working closely with our partners at the San Joaquin Area Flood Control Agency and the California Department of Water Resources. Learn more about the plan in this video.

State of California signs cost-share agreement for Lower San Joaquin River Feasibility Study

 

(Sacramento, CA). The State of California has officially become a partner to the Federal Cost Share Agreement (FCSA) for the Lower San Joaquin River Feasibility Study. Pictured below is USACE Sacramento District Colonel Tom Chapman and SJAFCA Executive Director Jim Giottonini, along with Central Valley Flood Protection Board President Ben Carter (center), signing the FCSA on June 25, 2010. The initial cost-share agreement, which was signed on February 19, 2009, did not include the state of California as a partner. Future flood protection improvements for our community are dependent on the continued success of the Lower San Joaquin River Feasibility Study. In addition to providing flood control benefits, the study will also identify environmental restoration and recreational enhancement opportunities for our region, enhance natural flood plain values, assist in managing sustainable urban development, and preserve agricultural areas. The State of California's sponsorship is significant as the State will help provide additional funding and resources needed to complete the study.
