Bear River North and Grasshopper Slough Levees Rehabilitation Project
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
GP: Yuba County Valley Agriculture, Sutter County Open Space, and Placer County Agriculture.
Z: Yuba County Principle Waterway and Exclusive Agriculture with 40-acre minimum size (AE-40), Sutter County Special Flood Plain Combining District (P-FP), and Placer County Farm-Building Site-Mineral Reserve (F-B-X MR 80, F-B-X 20, and F-B-X 80).
The District proposes to rehabilitate the Bear River north levee (BRNL) by constructing slurry walls within a number of vulnerable levee segments. Construction of the proposed slurry walls is intended to correct a design deficiency by limiting underseepage to meet safety standards and to help qualify the levees for Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) 100-year flood protection certification for the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). As part of the proposed project, RD 2103 also proposes to widen an approximately 1,300-foot length of the BRNL that has been subject to severe waterside erosion. In addition, the proposed project would implement minor improvements to the Grasshopper Slough levee that would include the replacement of corrugated metal culverts under the levee.
