Ventura County Public Works Agency Seeks Community Input for Upcoming Flood Protection Project
By: Ventura County Public Works Agency
The project would consist of improvements to the existing SCR-1 levee to meet Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) levee certification criteria. The improvements would provide adequate flood protection to structures and roadways while increasing the level of protection to residents and businesses in the northern portion of the City of Oxnard that is located within the one percent annual chance flood zone.
Project Objectives Include:
VCPWA-WP invites the community and other interested persons and organizations to submit comments on the scope and content of the environmental information to be included in the EIR. Please focus scoping comments on the issues to be considered, including environmental concerns, feasible ways in which impacts may be minimized (mitigation measures), and potential alternatives to the proposed Project that meet the primary flood protection objective.
Comments and feedback may be submitted via mail addressed to Ventura County Public Works Agency - Watershed Protection, Attn: SCR-1 Project, 800 S. Victoria Ave., #1600, Ventura, CA 93009 or via e-mail at SCR1info@ventura.org, no later than July 27, 2021
