Notice of Availability of Draft General Conformity Determination for American River Watershed Common Features, Water Resources Development Act of 2016 Project (ARCF 2016 Project)

The Clean Air Act (CAA) requires all federal actions to conform to applicable state plans to attain and maintain national air quality standards (i.e., SIP, or State Implementation Plan) (42 U.S.C. 7506(c), section 176(c)). The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) prepared a Draft General Conformity Determination for American River Watershed Common Features, Water Resources Development Act of 2016 Project (ARCF 2016 Project), to demonstrate conformity with the California SIP, in accordance with the requirements established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (40 CFR 93.150 et seq.)

Project Location:  In and around the City of Sacramento, California along the banks of the Sacramento and American Rivers, local tributaries, the associated drainage and levee network, and at the Sacramento Weir and Bypass.

Project Description:  Construction of approximately $1.5 billion in structural improvements to the Sacramento metropolitan area flood protection system of levees and bypasses, as recommended in the American River Common Features General Reevaluation Report (ARCF GRR, January 2016). The USACE, Central Valley Flood Protection Board (CVFPB), and Sacramento Area Flood Control Agency (SAFCA) joint Project aims to reduce flood damage and protect public safety within the Greater Sacramento area within the next four to five years.  Congress appropriated full funding for the ARCF 2016 Project under the Bipartisan Budget Act (Public Law 115-123). Environmental effects of the levee improvements were analyzed in the Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report (ARCF EIS/EIR, January 2016).

The Draft General Conformity Determination provides the opportunity for public and agency involvement and comment.  During the 30-day public review period, the USACE encourages public questions and comments on the air quality General Conformity Determination for American River Watershed Common Features, Water Resources Development Act of 2016.

Comments on the Draft General Conformity Determination will be accepted from March 25, 2020 to April 25, 2020. Written comments may be submitted to: General Conformity Determination ARCF 2016 – Planning Team, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Sacramento District, 1325 J Street, Sacramento, California 95814 or email: spk-pao@usace.army.mil.

The Draft General Conformity Determination is available electronically at sacleveeupgrades.com and the USACE website: http://www.spk.usace.army.mil/Media/USACEProjectPublicNotices.aspx, or the Central Valley Flood Protection Board website: http://www.cvfpb.ca.gov.  Copies of the Draft Determination available upon request. Contact our Public Affairs Office  at (916) 557-5100, or spk-pao@usace.army.mil.

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

  • Draft Supplemental Environmental Assessment / Environmental Impact Report (SEA/EIR) (2019)
  • Final Supplemental Environmental Assessment / Environmental Impact Report (SEA/EIR) (November 2019)

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.

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.
