Chertoff Will Tour Northern California Levees Next Week

Sponsored by:

Sacramento, CA — Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff will tour California´s fragile levee system March 17.

It´s part of a bid by Governor Schwarzenegger to persuade the federal government of the risks of a Hurricane Katrina-style disaster here.

The governor´s office says Chertoff is scheduled to survey the levee system by helicopter and likely will meet with state and federal officials.

The governor asked President Bush last month for a federal disaster declaration for the Sacramento area´s fragile river and delta levee system.
