VENTURA, Calif. --Nine levees in Ventura County do not meet federal standards, and according to the Ventura County Star, three of those levees probably won't be fixed in time to meet FEMA's December deadline.If the levees are "decertified", the area behind them become federal flood plains, and property owners would need to buy flood insurance.
That adds up to more than $1,700 per property each year.
Ventura County has hired a contractor to assess the levies.
