NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
A series of storms struck Northern California and Nevada in late December and early January 2005/2006. The Sacramento River, Truckee River and Tributaries reached flood stage. 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. Construction for the site consist of restoring the damaged waterside levee slope to the pre-flood condition by excavating the eroded slope at least 0.5 feet beyond the damaged area in steps to assure proper bonding with the new backfill material at the steepest safe slope.
