Corps awards contract for levee repairs along Feather River West Levee

From the USACE website – Repairs will soon be underway for nearly five miles of critically deficient Feather River west levee between Tudor Road and Cypress Avenue in south Sutter County. In late February, the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) issued a $35 million contract to Great Lakes E&I for its Sutter Basin Project, which involves the installation of cutoff walls as deep as 140 feet into the existing levee. Construction crews will begin mobilizing in May and repair work is expected to last two construction seasons. The project will be managed by the USACE. “We are excited to continue the efforts to lower the risk of a historically flood-prone region. The initiative taken by SBFCA to move ahead of the Corps process has us in an excellent position to bring substantial benefits to this community much sooner,” said Corps project manager Patrick Howell.
