U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District water resources planner Kim Carsell (left) and Jason Sidley with the California Department of Water Resources (right) explain preliminary findings and recommendations of Californiaâs Flood Future Report at the Floodplain Management Associationâs annual conference, held in Sacramento, Calif., Sept. 4-7, 2012. Judy Soutiere (center), also with the Corpsâ Sacramento District, moderated a workshop on the report. The report is a collaboration between the Corps and DWR, and assesses the flood risk to lives and property for the entire state. âOne of the problems is the small fraction of funding spent on flood management compared to wastewater management and water supply,â said Sidley. Some 7.2 million Californians currently live in a floodplain, according to the report, which is scheduled to be co-published by DWR and the Corps in early 2013. That includes more than 3 million people in the southern coastal portion of the state, over 1 million in the San Francisco area, and just under 1 million in the Sacramento River region. âEveryone in California is at risk â whether or not you live in a floodplain,â said Carsell, âand the impact of a devastating flood here will reach far beyond the stateâs boundaries.â (U.S. Army photo by Hunter Merritt/Released)
