Purpose: As part of the Delta Levees Investment Strategy, the Council will be discussing Delta flood hazards and State priorities for reducing flood risk to lives, property, water supply reliability, the Delta ecosystem, and the Delta as an evolving place. During the meeting, Council staff and consultants will explain the risk-reduction methodology and will demonstrate the draft decision-support tool that is part of the Delta Levees Investment Strategy project. The demonstration will focus on information contained in thetool related to the protection of people, property, and the coequal goals and will provide a preliminary risk analysis of Delta islands and tracts. The risk analysis incorporates the probability of levee failure by island and the consequences of these failures in terms of lives lost, property damages, water supply disruption, habitat change, and “Delta as place” elements.

Council staff will also discuss the next steps in the Delta Levees Investment Strategy project, which include development of levee improvement concepts to reduce risk and using the decision-support tool to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of these investments.

The work session is for informational purposes only; although the Council may offer comments and suggestions to staff and consultants, no formal action will be taken by the Council.
