Preventing The Next Big Flood

Crews finish section of slurry wall in the Marysville Ring Levee project

From the Appeal-Democrat – Marysville is one step closer to being the most protected city in the Central Valley from flooding, experts say, with the recent completion of a stretch of slurry wall in part of the ring levee project. Last week, crews completed a portion of the Marysville Ring Levee project – Phase 2A North – located between the 10th Street and Fifth Street bridges. The project started in June and saw crews place approximately 1,000 feet of slurry wall – costing an estimated $5 million to construct. To date, crews have completed approximately 6,100 feet of improvements, or three phases of the seven planned. In total, the construction improvements have cost roughly $27.4 million. (more)
