Fourth SRBPP Meeting Held

Representatives from the Sacramento District and California’s Central Valley Flood Protection Board were on hand two nights ago in Chico, California to discuss and accept comments on the Sacramento River Bank Protection Project.

A series of four workshops have now been successfully held, informing the public about the SRBPP, a joint flood risk reduction effort between the district and the state’s California Central Valley Flood Protection Board to repair critical erosion sites along the Sacramento River and its tributaries.

The SRBPP plan describes potential methods of erosion repair work for up to 80,000 linear feet of riverbank along the Sacramento River system and its tributaries.

Public involvement is an important and required element of the environmental review process. The release of the Sacramento River Bank Protection Project (SRBPP) Draft Environmental Impact Statement/ Environmental Impact Report (EIS/EIR) is not only a major milestone, but also a critical point for public review and involvement that is carefully guided by state and federal regulations.

Comments on the draft reports will be accepted until February 27, 2015.
