Strategic Plan


The purpose of the FloodSAFE Strategic Plan is to capture a shared vision for success, enroll broad participation, and serve as a cornerstone to focus massive efforts. The Department of Water Resources (DWR) alone cannot accomplish the FloodSAFE vision; active participation by numerous partners and stakeholders throughout California will be essential to program success.

DWR has used this draft document extensively to guide development and early implementation of the FloodSAFE Initiative

Comments on the Draft Strategic Plan

DWR invited review and comment on the draft FloodSAFE Strategic Plan, and written comments received as of the July 25, 2008 submittal deadline are available at the links below:

In addition, DWR accepted public comment on the draft FloodSAFE Strategic Plan during a series of FloodSAFE Stakeholder Briefings held throughout California in June and July 2008. Comments received have been captured in the briefing summaries posted below:

All comments received will be considered during final editing of the Strategic Plan. (No written responses to comments will be provided.)

Based on content in the draft FloodSAFE Strategic Plan and comments received on the draft, DWR is defining the next level of detail by developing a FloodSAFE Implementation Plan to help organize and manage FloodSAFE work. Upon completion of a stable draft of the FloodSAFE Implementation Plan, the FloodSAFE Strategic Plan will be refined and finalized, expected mid-2010. The Strategic Plan may be updated periodically as needed to reflect changing conditions within the system.
