LWA has been providing program management support for the City of Woodland since 2015 in order to execute the Woodland Flood Risk Reduction Basin Feasibility study and Design Project. The project, which is an extension of the Lower Cache Creek, Yolo County, California City of Woodland, and Vicinity Feasibility study being advanced by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), has been proposed to identify a Locally Preferred Alternative (LPA) that is technically feasible, supported by the community, and that can be implementable by a combination of the local, state and federal governments.
LWA has provided the city with support in assessing their ability to raise local matching funds, securing State funding, and advancing the Lower Cache Creek Project. LWA prepared a preliminary cost allocation and assessment rate analysis, provided a recommended governance structure and strategic financial support, and developed an application to secure $5 million in State funding.
LWA’s team continues to assist the City of Woodland by providing UFRR agreement administrative support, which consists of generating credit requests for submittal to the State, compiling work plans and progress reports, and producing project completion reports. LWA is also working to develop a conceptual finance plan to be used in identifying the amount of State and local funding required to advance the flood risk reduction project under different State and local cost share funding scenarios.
