Urban Level of Flood Protection Criteria

California Department of Water Resources (DWR) | November 12, 2013
Summary

The Urban Level of Flood Protection Criteria was developed in response to requirements from the Central Valley Flood Protection Act of 2008, enacted by Senate Bill (SB) 5 (2007), to strengthen the link between flood management and land use.

The California Department of Water Resources (DWR) developed these criteria as a systematic approach to assist affected cities and counties within the Sacramento-San Joaquin Valley in making findings related to an urban level of flood protection before approving certain land-use decisions. In preparing these criteria, DWR used its broad experience and expertise in flood management and planning to address concerns related to flood protection and flood risk management.
