Flood Update

Continued rainfall in the Central Valley and snow in the higher elevations of the Sierra Nevada mountain range during the week of April 2-8 add to the threat of potential of flooding in the region surrounding Corcoran. The Army Corps of Engineers continues to release water from Lake Success, Lake Kaweah, and the Pine Flat Reservoir into the Tule River, the North Fork of the Kings River, and other minor river and canal systems. Water being released from these reservoirs is being diverted to or used on areas outside of Corcoran. To date, no farmland near the Corcoran levee has been flooded. As emphasized at the recent town hall meeting, a flash flood or storm surge scenario in Corcoran is unlikely. Residents, businesses, and public institutions will be provided several days’ notice if flooding will affect the community. The Cross Creek Flood Control District is taking precautionary steps to reduce the threat of potential flooding to the community of Corcoran. Work on the levee reconstruction is ongoing and has not stopped. Reconstruction of the Corcoran Levee is 60% complete and work is proceeding as scheduled. The levee reconstruction is expected to be completed by May 2017.
