A big round of applause to Castle Rock for being the second city on the West Coast to have their levees federally certified. FEMA now requires that all municipalities be able to certify that their levees can withstand a 100-year flood event. The certification process is exhaustive and can be costly, but Castle Rock Public Works took the initiative and made it happen. For more information, check out the Daily News article here.
Now Castle Rock not only boasts a giant rock, the best pizza on Earth and an illustrious graduate of their fine learning institution (me), but they have first rate flood protection. Way to go guys!
