Hamilton City J-Levee Project Begins

Representative Doug LaMalfa ‎participated in the groundbreaking of the Hamilton City J-Levee project yesterday, which will replace 6.8 miles of 110-year old levee to protect Hamilton City’s 2,000 residents from flooding.

The project has received over $30 million in Federal funding and is slated to receive an additional $8.5 million in the 2017 federal budget.

Following passage of the 2017 federal budget, the project will have 90% of required funding on hand.

“This community has sacrificed to contribute its own funding toward the project, and without their efforts we could never have secured federal support. ‎As construction begins, I’ll continue working to ensure that the project crosses the finish line and these 6.8 miles of levee are brought to modern standards,” said LaMalfa.

Hamilton City’s 2,000 residents have been evacuated six times over in the last 20 years. The existing levee, constructed in 1904, provides just 10-year flood protection and any significant storm threatens to overtop it.

The replacement project will bring the community to modern safety standards to protect residents and keep the vital Highway 32 connection between Interstate 5 and Highway 99 open.
