The young women and men of the Corps work hard protecting and restoring California’s environment and responding to disasters, becoming stronger workers, citizens and individuals through their service.
The California Conservation Corps today sent four crews --
50 corpsmembers -- to lay protective plastic on a Twitchell Island levee in the
Sacramento/San Joaquin Delta.
With a high tide expected, the CCC will place the plastic
secured by sandbags on a segment of the levee to protect it from wave-wash
The CCC crews are from Stockton and Napa. They expect to
work at least until dark on the levee at the request of Reclamation District
The Corps has worked on Twitchell Island before and has used
it for a floodfighting training site.
Crews throughout the state are flood-trained and ready to
respond where needed.
