Reason for Recommended Action/Background
The Knights Landing Unit 2 - Yolo Bypass - County Service Area 6 (CSA 6) levee system is a portion of the Sacramento River Flood Control Project, a large-scale levee project authorized by Congress. This system reduces the risk of flooding for Yolo and Sutter counties, and adjacent agricultural lands from flood waters in the Sacramento River, Knights Landing Ridge Cut, and Colusa Basin Drain. A non-urban population and small number of structures are present within the leveed area. The Central Valley Flood Protection Board is a non-federal sponsor and has delegated authority to Yolo County CSA 6 for operation and maintenance of the levee system.

Over the last few years, the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) has implemented the Flood Maintenance Assistance Program (FMAP), which provides State funds for eligible maintenance activities to Local Maintaining Agencies and Maintenance Areas. The program's purpose is to ensure that State Plan of Flood Control Facilities are properly maintained and have sufficient resources (i.e., funding) to meet applicable federal regulations and operation and maintenance requirements. An important component of this program is that local matching funds are not required to obtain the State funding.

Yolo County CSA 6 was a successful recipient of $152,600 in FMAP funding for the 2022 calendar year. Funds received will be used for continued implementation of levee maintenance activities that have been funded by the FMAP program since 2019.  These activities include, but are not limited to, vegetation control (e.g., weed spraying, tree liming, and grazing), the removal of critical pipe crossings, and rodent control.  

Staff would like to note that there is a recital in Attachment C that states:

"The County of Yolo acknowledges that it must submit a new operations, maintenance, repair, rehabilitation, and replacement agreement with the Central Valley Flood Protection Board prior to the receipt of Flood Maintenance Assistance Program funds."

The Board of Supervisors approved the above-referenced agreement during their meeting on May 21, 2019 (Resolution No. 19-70 and Agreement No. 19-93). The agreement was fully executed by the Central Valley Flood Protection Board on June 10, 2019.  No additional agreements with the Central Valley Flood Protection Board are required to receive the 2021-2022 FMAP funding.

Staff collaborated with the California Department of Water Resources and the Office of County Counsel on this item.
