WHERE: City of Sacramento Utilities Office, 1395 35th Ave., Sacramento, CA 95822 

SPEAKER: Mr. Gary Bardini, Director of Planning, Sacramento Flood Control Agency.  Mr. Bardini became SAFCA’s Director of Planning in September 2017, with more than 30 years of public service with the State of California providing strategic planning, policy development and engineering services to promote integrated and sustainable management of the state’s water resources.  At SAFCA he directs the formulation, refinement, coordination and policy administration for SAFCA’s strategic and project-level planning initiatives.

Prior to working for SACFA, Mr. Bardini served as the Integrated Water Management Deputy Director for the California Department of Water Resources from 2011 to 2017 were he was responsible for the analysis and planning tied to the California Water Plan; drought management operations; 400 regional Urban Water Management Plans, and sustainable groundwater management plans.  He was also responsible for the multi-faceted FloodSAFE California initiative which operates and enhances State-owned flood facilities, provides resources for local flood risk reduction projects, and implements the Central Valley Flood Protection Plan, all within the area served by the State Plan of Flood Control.

TOPIC: Yolo Bypass Implementation:  Local, State, and Federal agency coordination.  The Yolo Bypass is the central feature of the Sacramento River Flood Control Project (SRFCP).  Today, the Yolo Bypass landscape is widely valued not only for its function as a flood protection facility, but also for a vibrant agricultural industry and critically important habitat for many bird and mammal species and migrating fish.  The Yolo Bypass is the focus of several major interagency efforts aimed at improving flood conveyance, fisheries and wildlife habitats, water supply and water quality, agricultural land preservation, and economic development.  This presentation will focus on efforts to work with other local, State, and federal agencies on Yolo Bypass implementation.
