Florin Creek Improvements Delayed

Flood risk reduction work along Florin Creek in south Sacramento will be delayed until spring 2016 as construction would have begun too close to the rainy season.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Sacramento District, awarded a $7.1 million contract to PRS Newland JV of Sacramento, on June 26, 2015, with a plan to begin work in August and continue until completion next fall.

However, obtaining required construction documentation took longer than anticipated, meaning construction is now expected to begin in May 2016.

We’ll be ready to move forward with construction on this important flood risk reduction project next spring,” said John Hoge, project manager for the Corps.

The work will include widening and concrete-lining Florin Creek channel as well as installing flood walls.

The South Sacramento County Streams Group Project is a joint effort between the Corps, the Central Valley Flood Protection Board and the Sacramento Area Flood Control Agency to reduce flood risk in the Sacramento basin.

The southern portion of the basin has historically been vulnerable to flooding from high water events in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta as well as high flows on Morrison, Florin, Elder and Union House creeks.
