Document Description
SAFCA is proposing to create a new funding mechanism that would provide the local share of the cost of comprehensive flood control improvements necessary to provide urban-standard flood protection (i.e., 200-year or greater level of flood protection, which means protection from a flood that has an annual risk of occurrence of 0.5% or less) for the Sacramento area. The funding mechanism would fund the completion of the previously approved projects and modifications to those projects as follows: - Improvements to Folsom Dam that would increase the dam's low-level discharge and flood control storage capacities (i.e., Folsom Dam raise, auxiliary spillway, and/or outlet modifications); - Construction of a new bridge across the American River downstream of the dam; - Improvements to the American and Sacramento River levee systems that would allow this system to safely contain sustained releases up to 160,000 cubic feet per second from Folsom Dam; - Improvements to the levees around the Natomas Basin, including erosion treatments, levee raising, and a combination of deep slurry walls, earthen berms, relief wells, and potentially a setback or backup levee on the Sacramento River east levee; - Improvements to the levees along Morrison Creek and its tributaries (i.e., the "South Sacramento Streams Group"); - Improvements to the levees along the Natomas East Main Drainage Canal (also called Steelhead Creek) and its tributaries; and - a long-term extraordinary maintenance program to address erosion in the Sacramento and American River channels and other extraordinary maintenance needs.
