California Department of Water Resources Levee Inspection Reports
Each year the California Department of Water Resources conducts inspection activities for the State-Federal portions of the flood management system within the Central Valley, known as the “State Flood System". Afterwards, a report is compiled that documents the results of the inspections and any deficiencies that may be affecting the structural integrity of the system levees. This report is for use by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), DWR, the Central Valley Flood Protection Board (formerly Reclamation Board), Local Maintaining Agencies (LMA), and other interested parties.
