Department of Water Resources Director Lester Snow is giving the keynote speech Friday at a conference put on by the Sacramento Metro Chamber. He says with all the building that’s going on in local flood plains, we need to start taking action to avoid disaster. 

"Start making smarter decisions about how we develop and where we develop and that doesn’t mean not building houses but it means being very cognizant of where we’re building houses and how we’re constructing them."

Snow will be speaking at the Metro Chamber’s annual State of the Counties Forum Friday at the Hyatt Regency in Sacramento.
