Groundbreaking of the Sacramento District’s Southport Levee Improvement Project

May 9th, 2017. Officials from Federal, State, and Local government departments came to celebrate the groundbreaking of West Sacramento Area Flood Control Agency’s (WSAFCA) Southport Levee Improvement Project. The project will improve 5.6 miles of levees along the west bank of the Sacramento River just south of the deep water ship channel. 1.9 miles of in-place improvements, and a new 3.7 mile setback levee will be constructed most likely over two years and will bring West Sacramento up to an Urban Level of Protection (200-year) mandated by SB-5 for a cost of approximately $170 million, shared between the Department of Water Resources and WSAFCA.
