Friends of the Napa River urge the authorities to fight for the completion of the Napa Flood Control Project. FONR supported the study and reviewed the findings. The project needs to be completed to protect Napa neighbors from flooding as promised when voting for Measure A.

From the Napa Valley Register:

Armed with data from a $415,000 engineering study, the local flood district will be trying to shake loose additional money from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to keep the flood project from shutting down.

Currently, the Corps intends to end the flood project next year when construction of the $12.5 million bypass channel bordering downtown Napa is finished.

If that happens, a large swath of the neighborhood near the river would still get wet in a major flood, contrary to the project goals that county voters approved in 1998 when they passed Measure A, a half-cent flood control sales tax.
