A cornerstone of DWR’s effort to improve integrated flood management in California’s Central Valley, the Central Valley Flood Management Planning (CVFMP) Program was launched in 2008 and is managed by the Division of Flood Management’s Central Valley Flood Planning Office (CVFPO). The Central Valley Flood Protection Plan (CVFPP) sets forth a plan for sustainable flood management and investment to improve flood risk management in the Central Valley through use of the State Plan of Flood Control (SPFC) facilities. Following adoption of the CVFPP in 2012, DWR began refinement of the CVFPP recommendations via the three significant planning efforts listed in the boxes below. The next update of the CVFPP is scheduled for completion in 2017. Implementation of certain CVFPP actions has already begun and will be expanded after the 2017 Update.
