Corps Discusses Yuba River Plans

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Sacramento District, has expanded its series of public scoping meetings discussing the feasibility of ecosystem restoration in Northern California’s Yuba River watershed.

The meetings will present an outline of the study’s purpose, a tentative schedule and provide the first opportunity for public interaction with the project team.

The Corps and the non-Federal partners, the Yuba County Water Agency, will be on hand to discuss the study and answer any questions about the process and accept public comments.

The goal of the Yuba River study is to examine the potential for ecosystem restoration along the Yuba River.

An integrated feasibility report and draft environmental impact statement will be developed to analyze possible measures. The Corps will serve as lead agency for compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act.
