USACE Publishes Draft Feasibility Report for Yuba River Eco Study

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Sacramento District, published a draft feasibility report and environmental assessment on Friday, marking a major milestone in the Yuba River Ecosystem Restoration feasibility study.

Improvements to approximately 178 acres of existing aquatic and riparian habitat along the lower Yuba River, between Englebright Dam and the confluence of the Yuba and Feather rivers in Yuba County, are being proposed.

Measures such as side channels, backwaters, floodplain lowering, riparian planting, and installation of hydraulic roughness and structural complexity features that replicate nature could be implemented throughout the project area, said USACE.

The release of the draft feasibility report and environmental assessment kicks off a 45-day public review period.

USACE will host public meetings in Marysville and Sacramento to discuss the proposed project, answer questions and accept comments.

The public meetings will be held:

  • Marysville – Tuesday, January 16, 2018 from 5 to 7 p.m. at Yuba County Government Center Marysville and Wheatland Conference Room (915 8th Street, Marysville, CA 95901);
  • Sacramento – Monday, January 22, 2018 from 1 to 3 p.m. at John E. Moss Federal Building Stanford Room (650 Capitol Mall, Sacramento, CA 95814).
