Delta Levees Investment Strategy: Technical / Policy Public Workshop
Wednesday, March 11, 2015
Park Tower Plaza
980 9th Street, 2nd Floor Conference Room
Sacramento, CA 95814

On March 11 the Council will host a half-day workshop focused on levees and risk management, strategies for State investments to reduce risk while meeting multiple objectives and issues related to liability. Technical experts from this region, as well as from around the country have been invited to attend and engage the Council, its staff, and consultants, in a dialog related to these topics.

Information gained from this workshop should further assist the Council as it undertakes various decision-making processes related to the Delta Levees Investment Strategy. The workshop will be structured as a conversation between the Council members and the invited experts, with opportunities for the Council and panelists to receive public comment at scheduled times. Information for the workshop will be posted on the Council’s website.
