The Central Valley Floodplain Evaluation and Delineation Program is an integral part of the FloodSAFE California Initiative. It is a comprehensive effort designed to protect against loss of life, flood damages, and emergency costs for both existing and future developments caused by future flood events. It will lead to acquisition, construction, and improvements for the Central Valley State Plan of Flood Control Facilities as it protects the State's populace and infrastructure. The Central Valley Topography Acquisition Project consists of: (1) collecting approximately 7,800 square miles of new LiDAR data, (2) acquiring approximately 9,000 square miles of new aerial imagery, and (3) acquiring approximately 1,000 miles of supplemental topographic survey data.
