Document Description
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, in coordination with the Department of Water Resources, the Central Valley Flood Protection Board, and the Sacramento Area Flood Control Agency, propose to conduct topographic and utility surveys at planned flood system improvement areas (i.e. erosion protection sites) as part of the American River Contracts 4a and 4b Projects. Survey data will be used to inform future engineering design of the American River Contracts 4a and 4b Projects. The surveys will include data gathering of all flood control features located in the planned erosion protection sites. The utility surveys would include potholing to verify existing underground utilities. Potholing methods include the use of hand tools or air and hydro vacuum excavation that are mounted to a trailer or truck.
