River Partners, Team to Set Vision for a Flood Safe Mid-San Joaquin River Region

River Partners, Reclamation District 2092 (Dos Rios Ranch), and Stanislaus County are teaming up to work with DWR to write a Regional Flood Management Plan for the Mid San Joaquin River Region. The Plan will describe our "vision for a flood safe region" including multiple benefit projects and collaboration amongst local interests. The planning process will include broad stakeholder engagement from landowners to municipalities, irrigation districts to county planners. We have already received 15 letters of support from various partners in the region, and look forward to hearing from even more partners as the process unfolds.

Anyone interested in joining the email list may do so by contacting info@riverpartners.org with RFMP in the subject line.
