Sacramento Flood Control - Federal Funding Approved for Levee Repairs

"Rep. Doris Matsui, D-Sacramento, said late Tuesday that the (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers) had completed work on its spending priorities for 2007 and that a record $110 million will be spent on Sacramento-area projects." This will fund a critical part of the work needed to upgrade our local protection against flooding from the Sacramento River, American River and the local creeks. Additional federal funding is still needed to enable the upgrades planned for Folsom Dam.
