Letter of Map Revision for Sacramento, California, Shows Effects of Levee Restoration for Sacramento River and Morrison Creek
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) has restored levees along the Sacramento River and Morrison Creek. This will affect the flood insurance requirements for many property owners in the Sacramento River and Morrison Creek floodplains, which include parts of the City of Sacramento. Local flood control officials and the USACE studied the flood hazards and submitted data to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for review. On February 21, 2007, FEMA issued a Letter of Map Revision (LOMR) showing the revised flood hazard areas.
