Document Title
Vegetation Clearing in the San Luis Rey River Flood Control Project
Document Type
EA - Environmental Assessment
Document Description
The purpose of the proposed action is to enhance flow conveyance to the San Luis Rey River Flood Control Channel which currently provides less than optimal flood protection and reduce the risk of flood damage to life and property in the floodplain area of the tower 7.2 miles of the San Luis Rey River through the City of Oceanside, California. The vast volume of vegetation in the channel impedes the flow conveyance within the channel. By mowing and chipping vegetation in the river channel, the peak flow conveyance will be increased to minimize potential storm water outlets to the channel. This action will lessen the risk of flood water overtopping the levee and thus the potential of levee failure during significant storm events. To be effective, the action should occur before the onset of significant winter rains during the 2005-2006 winter season.
