The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers delivered to Congress its Fiscal Year 2019 work plan for the Army Civil Works program on November 20, funding an additional $53.5 million to a handful of Sacramento District projects.

Two Northern California projects received a bulk of the Sacramento District work plan funding.

Construction to complete levee upgrades around the Natomas Basin received an additional $22.6 million, while the Sacramento River Bank Protection Project received $19.25 million to construct added erosion protection on the Feather River. More than $6.6 million to complete construction on the Hamilton City multipurpose project were also included.

Two projects that have not yet begun construction received funding for design efforts, said USACE in its release.

The Lower San Joaquin River project will see an additional $2.9 million to complete preconstruction engineering and design work, while the West Sacramento project will receive $400,000 to initiate its engineering and design efforts.

Work eligible for consideration for the additional funding generally includes projects, programs and activities funded in the three previous fiscal years, with emphasis on ongoing work on projects, programs and activities that can attain a significant milestone or produce significant outputs in FY2019.

The Army’s Civil Works FY2019 work plan provides funding to start, continue, and complete studies and construction projects that will get dirt moving to better the lives of Americans, their infrastructure, economy and environment,” said the Honorable R. D. James, Assistant Secretary of the Army for Civil Works.  

Work plan funding is provided to projects in addition to annual appropriations, which this year included more than $200 million for Sacramento District projects.
