FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: Placer County Elevation Project on Miners Ravine   [open pdf - 26KB]

Alternate Title: Placer County Elevation Project Miners Ravine

This document is part of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Best Practices Portfolio. The Best Practices Portfolio is a collection of true stories about people and communities who have experienced disasters, and what mitigation they used to survive, rebuild, and prepare for disasters. From the document: "The Dry Creek Watershed has experienced several significant flood events over the past several years. Homes and properties repeatedly flooded, resulting in millions of dollars of property and personal losses. Authorities of Placer County and the State of California established the Dry Creek Regional Project, a multi-jurisdictional effort to reduce repetitive flooding in the Dry Creek Watershed. The goals of the project are to reduce existing, repetitive flood damages through various flood control options, including structural and non-structural; and to assist responsible communities in avoiding potential future damages and economic losses." This and other individual FEMA Best Practices documents are also combined in "Mitigation Best Practices: Public and Private Sector Best Practice Stories for All Activity/Project Types in All States and Territories Relating to All Hazards [August 10, 2011]," which can be accessed at the following link: [https://www.hsdl.org/?abstract&did=683132]
