Document Description
The applicant proposes to modify the levee system on the Bear River to address identified deficiencies in the system and to reduce river stages by increasing Bear River floodway capacity. The latter would be achieved through a levee setback on the lower Bear River. Primary project components include: (1) Construction of the embankment of the lower Bear River setback levee; (2) degradation of portions of the existing lower Bear and Feather River levees; (3) removal of approximately 166 acres of orchard in the lower Bear River floodway; and (4) restoration of native habitat types in the lower Bear River floodway, and re-contouring and restoration of native habitat types on agricultural and developed lands in the levee setback area, including construction of a floodplain swale.
