Document Description
The overall purpose of the Natomas Levee Improvement Program (NLIP) is to bring the entire 42-mile Natomas Basin perimeter levee system into compliance with applicable Federal and state standards for levees protecting urban areas. The Phase 4a Project - a component of the multi-phase NLIP-includes levee raising and seepage remediation along the Sacramento River east levee (Reaches 10-15) and in 2 locations of the Natomas Cross Canal south levee as well as relocation and extension of the Riverside Canal. The Fisherman's Lake Borrow Area would be the primary source of soil borrow for Phase 4a Project construction and additional borrow could be obtained from the I-5 and Phase 3 Project borrow areas; excavated areas would be reclaimed as agricultural land, grassland, or managed marsh depending on their location and existing land use. If permitted, the Phase 4a Project could be constructed at the same time as portions of the Phase 2 and 3 Projects. Construction is planned for 2010-2011, assuming recepit of all required environmental clearances and permits.
