Delta Levee Conditions Maps
DWR maps provide snapshot of levee conditions
The Department of Water Resources (DWR) has provided to the Delta Stewardship Council (DSC) maps and other information relating to the existing conditions of Delta levees. This information includes maps constructed by DWR indicating its best estimate of levee miles conforming to existing levee guidance and standards. In the interest of transparency, the DSC is making this information publically available on its website.
Two large area maps are provided for public viewing. One map portrays a Delta-wide view of percentage of compliance with FEMA’s Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP) guidance, by individual island. The second map portrays a Delta-wide view of percentage of compliance with the US Army Corps of Engineer’s PL 84-99 standard, by individual island. 93 individual island maps portraying levee status and construction activity are posted further down on this web page.
In addition to the maps provided, DWR has also provided supporting information, including transmittal documents, data summary tables, analytical assumptions and limitations, and disclaimers relating to the submitted information. We recommend that viewers of these map products read the accompanying materials to best understand the context and conditions under which DWR developed these items.
