Draft Released for Stockton Levee Improvements

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District has released its proposed plan to improve approximately 23 miles of levee to help reduce flood risk for North and Central Stockton. 

The plan would implement a variety of levee improvements including installing cutoff walls, building new levees and adding erosion protection. It would also add closure structures at Fourteenmile Slough and the Smith Canal to decrease riverine and tidal flows during high water events­­­­.

The proposed plan is published in a draft integrated feasibility report that assesses potential environmental impacts associated with the project proposed by the Corps. California’s Central Valley Flood Protection Board and the San Joaquin Area Flood Control Agency are local partners for the study.

The draft document, the Lower San Joaquin River Draft Feasiblity Report, is published on the Sacramento District’s website, and will also be made available for review at Cesar Chavez Central Library in Stockton; Manteca Public Library; and Lathrop Branch Library.
