USACE Awards Contract for Natomas Levee Construction

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Sacramento District, last week awarded a $19.5 million contract to Great Lakes Environmental & Infrastructure/Inquip Joint Venture of Rocklin to construct levee improvements for the Natomas Basin.

Construction work, set to begin in September and continue through the end of 2018, will consist of building a seepage berm and cutoff wall along an 11,000-foot-long stretch of levee along Garden Highway between Gateway Oaks Drive and Northgate Blvd.

The work is part of an effort to reduce flood risk in the Natomas Basin by improving approximately 42 miles of levee surrounding the Basin.

Sacramento Area Flood Control Agency and the State of California have already completed 18 miles of improvements; the Corps is working to complete the remaining 24 miles. This particular project, which is located along the southern side of the Natomas Basin along the American River, will upgrade approximately 2.1 miles.
