- Army Corps Opening PL 84-99 Rehabilitation Program - At the May CVFPB meeting, Jonathon Yau of the USACE announced it will be opening the PL 84-99 Program application period in two phases. Phase 1 will be the Sacramento River system opening for applications in early June and Phase 2 will be the San Joaquin River system opening once the water recedes late this summer. The Board also sent a letter to the USACE requesting that the 15 Central Valley Letters of Intent to prepare SWIFs that are pending Corps approval be considered eligible for levee repairs damaged in 2023 storms.
- Joint DWR-CVFPB Flood Briefing - On May 24, 2023, the Central Valley Flood Protection Board and DWR hosted a joint briefing on flood planning and prevention in the Sacramento and San Joaquin Valleys and announced the release of a Flood Management Funding Essentials brochure as a companion to the 2022 update of the Central Valley Flood Protection Plan (CVFPP). The video of the briefing and a slide presentation are both available.
- Flood Emergency Declaration - In anticipation of a series of storms expected to pound the west coast of California, Governor Newsom proclaims a state of emergency to facilitate the emergency response and mobilize state resources that will be required. In addition to the mobilization of the National Guard, the Governor activated the State Operations Center to its highest level and mobilized the Flood Operations Center, which covers forecasting, reservoir operations coordination, and provides flood fighting materials for local agencies. On January 8, 2023 the Newsom Administration also scheduled a media briefing on statewide efforts to address storm impacts and submitted a request for a Presidential Emergency Declaration to support ongoing storm response and recovery efforts.
- Storm Damage Exposed - At the January 2023 Central Valley Flood Protection Board, Ric Reinhardt (MBK Engineers) provided a presentation on levee damage CCVFCA member agencies experienced during the recent series of atmospheric river storm events that started at the end of December.
