DWR’s Flood System Model Development , Management and Upkeep program is a comprehensive effort designed to support the systemwide maintenance and improvement of the Central Valley Floodplain Evaluation and delineation Program (CVFED) models developed for the Sacramento and San Joaquin River Basins. It is essential to maintain a centralized expertise and data sets that are able to effectively support management and understanding concerning changes to the Central Valley hydraulic modeling scenarios as they are developed and expanded in future. A centralized data, information, maps and tools management, visualization and dissemination system utilizing California Data Exchange centers data systems is important for further evaluation and analyses for planning, projects, technical assistance and risk communications for system wide flood risk reduction.
