Studies of floodflows in the Sacramento River and Butte Basin have been reported by the U.S. Geological Survey in cooper­ ation with the California. Streamflow data at various locations were assembled for the Sacramento River between Red Bluff and Meridian, Calif., and for Butte Basin, which serves as an overflow basin during periods of flooding.

Data were obtained from various Federal and State agencies and private sources to document the magnitude of flooding from to The assembled data include annual maximum flood stages and. Geology of the Northern Sacramento Valley, California. (DWR) acquired geologic data from groundwater observation well drilling operations that were conducted in the valley over the last 15 years.

Using the observation well drilling data, DWR evaluated and classified the lithology of the subsurface sediments, implemented petrographic sand. Two years later, a series of tropical storms hit the valley, causing the Cosumnes River to crash through levees in 24 places.

Most recently, the / event earned the name “New Year’s Eve Storm” because it soaked the region and caused widespread, localized flooding during the first days on New Year’s Eve through. Bulletin is California’s official publication on the occurrence and nature of groundwater statewide.

Bulletin defines the boundaries and describes the hydrologic characteristics of California’s groundwater basins and provides information on groundwater management and.

For the entire Sacramento River basin, aboutacres were flooded. Twenty-four lives were lost in north-coastal California, and flood damage was about $ million times the loss in the same region caused by the December floods.

The flood episodes of and in California resulted in an overhaul of planned statewide flood control designs.

In the Tulare Lake Basin, 89, acres of cropland had to be flooded to provide water storage the melting snow. This flood could be called the Tulare Lake Storm. Tulare Lake basin, where overacres of crops are grown, is normally a fully cultivated dry lake-bed and the former terminus of.

The Central Valley Flood Protection Plan (CVFPP) is California's strategic blueprint to improve flood risk management in the Central Valley. The first plan was adopted in and is updated every 5 years. The plan lays out strategies to: Prioritize the State's investment in flood management over the next 3 decades ; Promote multi-benefit projects.

Latitude: º N: Longitude: º W: Elevation: 99 Feet: Location: Glenn County in California: River Group: Upper Sacramento. InDWR evaluated California’s groundwater basins for conditions of critical overdraft.

DWR consulted with the State Climatologist and identified a base period for this evaluation of water years towhich includes wet and dry periods and has the same mean precipitation as the long-term mean. Leading up to the February storms, the California Cooperative Snow Surveys forecast for the Sacramento, Feather, Yuba, and American Rivers for the water year called for below-normal runoff.

One of the more unique and notable flood impacts occurred on the American River with the collapse of an earthen cofferdam built in to hold back. the hydrology and geomorphology of the Sacramento Valley riv-ers are different.

The lower Mississippi drains a much larger basin and has larger flows but flood peaks arrive slower and are smaller in proportion to mean flows than in the Sacramento Valley. Northern California was settled rapidly by Americans and Eu. Sufficient research has now been conducted on California’s water conveyance systems to provide this historic context and survey methodology for the appropriate consideration of water conveyance systems, especially the frequently encountered canals and ditches, in order to take into account the effect of transportation projects on historic.

While Valley Water's projects have improved flood protection for more thanhomes, businesses and properties, parts of Santa Clara County are susceptible to flooding every year. As we all spend more time in our homes during these challenging times, we invite you to use this guide as a resource to follow nine essential steps to GET FLOOD.
