City of Visalia


Project Description:

The project is located in the vicinity of the City of Visalia, in Tulare County. The funding for the project will allow for construction and expansion of three off-stream transitory storage basins. The storage basins will increase the system's flood water storage capacity and capture peak flood flows to help manage storm events and reduce flood risk. In addition, approximately 46 acres of native valley oak riparian woodland habitat would be restored along the lower Kaweah River and Mill Creek.
