Congressman Bera Calls on Congress to Fund Sacramento-area Levees

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Earlier today Congressman Ami Bera urged the House of Representatives Committee on the Budget to fund repairs to the Sacramento and American River levee system in the 2014 budget.

"Sacramento -- which sits where the Sacramento and American Rivers converge, near the Bay Delta -- has the 2nd highest flood risk in the United States," said Bera. "A flood in the Sacramento region would be devastating to the 1.4 million people who live in our metropolitan area… To date, the Army Corps has identified 10 projects of national economic importance through Signed Chief Reports. The Natomas levees are one of these critical projects… These levees are in desperate need of critical repair to help prevent a catastrophic disaster."
