Sacramento River Plan Unveiled

The USACE, Sacramento District, Central Valley Flood Protection Board and the California Department of Water Resources will host public scoping meetings November 3rd and 9th to begin identifying flood risk reduction and ecosystem restoration opportunities along the Sacramento River.  

The meetings will provide a brief overview of the study purpose, National Environmental Policy Act/California Environmental Quality Act processes, and how the public can help shape a potential project for federal participation.

The study is a general reevaluation of the existing Sacramento River Flood Control Project, and is looking at opportunities along the Sacramento River and a number of its tributaries, from Elder Creek, near Tehama, to its confluence with the San Joaquin River in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta.

Project features are also located along tributaries, sloughs, and bypass channels, including the Feather River, American River, Sutter Bypass, and Yolo Bypass.

Comments will be accepted during the two public meetings, and can also be submitted at any time during the 30-day public comment period, which will continue through November 23, 2015.

Proposed measures to be considered include, among others, widening existing bypasses, modifying existing weirs, optimizing weir operations, constructing setback levees, developing floodplain management plans, restoring riverine aquatic and riparian habitat, removing barriers to fish passage, and restoring natural geomorphic processes.

The draft EIS/EIR is scheduled to be available for public review and comment in spring 2017.
