  • The California Department of Water Resources developed the Urban Level of Flood Protection Criteria (Criteria) and a systematic approach to assist cities and counties to make findings related to affected land use decisions. The Criteria fulfill legislative requirements enacted by Senate Bill 5 in 2007 without interfering with local land use authority. They provide reasonable details and flexibility and promote prudent floodplain management in concert with other State laws and provisions related to smart growth strategies.
