2016 Yolo Subsidence Network Observation Event
The WRA Board approved the Technical Committee's recommendation to allocate a portion of the FY15-16 project fund budget for an re-observation event of the Yolo County Subsidence Network in 2016. The observation data was collected in June 2016 with the leadership of Jim Frame, Frame Surveying & Mapping, from Davis. The WRA, Yolo County, Conaway Ranch and the Yolo County Flood Control & Water Conseration District provided the funding for this ~ $92,000 project. The final report will be posted here after it is reviewed by the WRA technical staff (pdf ~ 4 MB).

In Yolo County, the cities of Davis and Woodland, Yolo County Flood Control & WCD, and UC Davis have committed staff or equipment to the project in addition to paticipation by local agencies in at least six counties in Northern California.
