Folsom Dam Project Needed for Sacramento Flood Control
Please send your comments before Fri Jan 26, 2007 !!Modifications of Folsom Dam (Sacramento County, California, USA) are needed to increase protection against flooding in Sacramento. Sacramento currently has the least protection against flooding of any major city in the US. This upgrading of our current flood control structures is cost-effective for taxpayers. It also protects the environment by reducing the need for new water development projects (i.e. additional dams or other new flood control structures) on pristine sections of river.
