Product Description

OVERCOMING THE DELUGE: California’s Plan For Managing Floods Katrina put an indelible spotlight on Sacramento as the city that faces the greatest risk of flooding in the U.S. because of its two rivers: the American and the Sacramento. California voters responded with a $4 billion bond to address aging levees and improve flood protection, especially in the Central Valley. The century-old levee system is put to the test every five to seven years by a significant flooding event. Overcoming the Deluge is a firsthand look at how Californians are working to reduce the consequences of flooding, protect—even enhance the ecosystem, and stand as a model of flood management.
