Going With The Flow
Turning its back on a century of trying to conquer rivers, the U.S.Army Corp of Engineers will now try to work with the river, starting with a $200 million project to reduce Napa river flooding. Bridges across the Napa river will be raised or removed, levees will be lowered, and wetlands created to let the river run its course. This project is the first of its kind in the U.S. and is being closely watched by planners as far away as Australia.
