Document Description
The action being taken is the preparation of an EIS/EIR for the West Sacramento Project, California, General Reevaluation Report (GRR). The purpose of the GRR is to evaluate opportunities to reduce flood risk, increase recreation, and restore the ecosystem along the Sacramento River within the study area. Approximately 50 miles of levees protect the City of West Sacramento and include portions of the Sacramento River, Yolo Bypass, Sacramento Bypass, and the Sacramento Deep Water Ship Channel. The EIS/EIR will address flood risk management alternatives developed during preparation of the GRR. Alternatives analyzed during the investigation could include a combination of one or more flood risk management measures. Potential measures include raising the existing levee; construction of an adjacent setback levee, cutoff walls, seepage berms, stability berms, internal drains relief wells, or sheetpile walls, slope flattening; placing stone protection and vegetation removal.
