Document Description
DWR Sacramento Maintenance Yard is responsible for providing operations and maintenance of the Cache Creek flood system around Woodland. Cache Creek has a long history of high-water events and flood fighting. A stockpile of materials and location for equipment to be staged at the Cache Creek property in advance of a flood fight would be valuable. In addition, there will be future sediment and vegetation removal projects that can utilize the land for staging and disposal. The acquisition of the property is to store flood fight materials and to support an incident command location. The property includes 20.28 acres of land, two agricultural buildings (about 8000 Sq. Ft.), and a 1556 sq. ft residence. Fencing will be added to the property on landside of levee.
