Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The California Central Valleys Flood Control Association (CCVFCA) records consist of 17 cubic feet of records and 18 maps created and collected by the CCVFCA, its predecessor, related committees, and affiliated groups. The records are arranged into 24 series. The bulk of the records in this collection were created in the 1950s and 1960s. The collection documents the efforts of the CCVFCA, composed of individual landowners, irrigation districts, reclamation districts, drainage districts, and others, in working with federal and state agencies for the construction, operation, and maintenance of a Central Valley flood control system. The CCVFCA also took an interest in water rights, area of origin issues, water diversion and use, and water quality issues.
The California Central Valleys Flood Control Association (CCVFCA) began its existence as the Flood Control Association of Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers System (FCA) in 1926. Various private interests formed the FCA in order to promote Central Valley flood control issues with both the state and federal governments, as stated in Article II of the FCA's Articles of Association:
17 cubic feet of textual records, and 18 maps.
