CCC members shore up an aging levee


Last month, California Conservation Corps crews from throughout the state participated in an intensive flood response training program. It wasn't long after the training program ended that Corpsmembers had to put their floodfighting skills to the test. On Christmas Eve, CCC Crews from the Monteray Bay Center (Watsonville, Salinas and San Jose) and the Napa Satellite were dispatched to sandbag a creek that overtopped in East Palo Alto, south of San Francisco. The crews worked until 2 a.m.

This week, one of those crews - Anthony Roe's San Jose crew - was back. The crew filled 5,000 sandbags on Tuesday, January 8, 2013. 

"We did about 1,000 bags an hour," said Anthony"
