Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The levee system of Reclamation District (RD-3) protects rural areas as well as the community of Walnut Grove. A breach in the levee may contribute to loss of lives and may have a large economical impact. The levee is bordered by Streamboat Slough and the Sacramento River. High water stages produced heavy damage to the levee embankment. Some of the damages have reduced the stability of the levee below the acceptable limits that may result in potential breaches in the embankment and flooding the protected area.
