City to Discuss Lower Cache Creek Flood Risk at Community Meeting

November 13, 2013

Community members are invited to attend a meeting to learn more about the Lower Cache Creek Feasibility Study, a planning effort of the US Army Corps of Engineers in partnership with the City of Woodland. The City will discuss recent activities to reduce flood risk and outline the purpose of, timeline for and intended outcomes from the feasibility study. The meeting is intended to provide general information and outline opportunities for future public involvement. Very preliminary (tentative) flood risk reduction alternatives will be available for public review. The City will hold focused small group and community meetings in coming months to solicit input on more detailed flood risk reduction alternatives.

6 p.m., Thursday, November 14
Woodland Community & Senior Center
2001 East Street, Woodland

The feasibility study is designed to identify potential solutions to reduce flood risk from Cache Creek and over the long term reduce social and economic impacts of flood damage. The feasibility study is part of the Corps' planning process to determine whether or not a flood risk reduction project is eligible for federal funding. The study may also be used to determine eligibility for future state funding.
