AMERICAN RIVER WATERSHED COMMON FEATURES (ARCF) 2016 PROJECT, SACRAMENTO RIVER EAST LEVEE CONTRACT 1

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Central Valley Flood Protection Board (CVFPB), and Sacramento Area Flood Control Agency (SAFCA) propose to construct levee improvements along the Sacramento River East Levee between O Street and Cosumnes River Boulevard to meet embankment and foundation stability requirements. Most of the levee improvements included in the Project were analyzed in the American River Common Features General Reevaluation Report (ARCF GRR) Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report (EIS/EIR). This Supplemental Environmental Assessment/EIR (EA/EIR) addresses project modifications and refinements since publication of the ARCF GRR EIS/EIR.

Following the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), a Supplemental EA/EIR has been prepared for this project. The results of the Supplemental EA/EIR indicate that most of the potential adverse effects that could result from implementation of the proposed alternative would either be short term or would be avoided or reduced to less than significant by using best management practices. However, analysis indicates potential significant effects on vegetation and wildlife, cultural resources, recreation, and traffic and circulation.

The Draft Supplemental EA/EIR also provides the opportunity for public and agency involvement and comment. During the 45-day public review period, a public workshop will be held to discuss the proposed project and encourage public questions and comments on the project. The public workshop date, time, and location is:

 September 12, 2019 at 5:00pm to 7:00pm at the Elk’s Lodge, 6446 Riverside Boulevard, Sacramento, CA 95831

Comments on the Draft Supplemental EA/EIR will be accepted from August 22, 2019 to October 7, 2019.

AMERICAN RIVER WATERSHED COMMON FEATURES (ARCF) 2016 PROJECT, BEACH STONE LAKES MITIGATION SITE

Central Valley Flood Protection Board (CVFPB), U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Sacramento District, and Sacramento Area Flood Control Agency (SAFCA) propose to construct a 24.2-acre riparian mitigation site.

Public comments on the Draft Supplemental EA/IS/MND will be accepted from March 28, 2019 through April 26, 2019.

MARYSVILLE RING LEVEE IMPROVEMENT PROJECT – PHASE 2B & 3

The Central Valley Flood Protection Board, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Marysville Levee District propose improvements to the Marysville Ring Levee (MRL). The Final Environmental Assessment/Initial Study (2010) analyzed potential environmental impacts resulting from the MRL Project, resulting in the adoption of a Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND). Since 2010, changes to the project design and schedule occurred for Phase 2B and 3, resulting in the need for a Supplemental EA/IS/MND.

Public comments on the Draft Supplemental EA/IS/MND will be accepted from March 29, 2019 through April 28, 2019.
