While commemorating Delta Flood Preparedness Week, federal, state and local emergency response agencies are striving to increase public awareness of flooding and improve public safety for all Californians, according to the Delta Protection Commission.

Approximately 700,000 acres of lowland are protected by more than 1,000 miles of levees in the Delta. Catastrophic natural and human disaster could happen at any time and any place,caused by flooding or levee failures in the Delta, according to a news release. Recent floods took place in 1995, 1997, 1998, 2004, and 2006.

The Delta Protection Commission encourages all Delta residents to take action to know their flood threat and prepare appropriately by assembling an emergency plan and supplies.

As part of Delta Flood Preparedness Week, the Delta Protection Commission is preparing educational materials regarding flood preparedness that will be distributed to Delta residents.

The commission will also have a flood preparedness information table from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday in downtown Walnut Grove, at the boat ramp across from Mel’s Mocha.

For more information about Delta Flood Preparedness Week, visit www.delta.ca.gov/beprepared.htm or call the Delta Protection Commission at 916-375-4800.

They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
