Levee Vegetation Research Program Windthrow, Root Architecture, Tree Root Seepage and Piping Studies
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
Levees on or near Lower Yuba, Bear, Feather, Sacramento, San Joaquin Rivers and Sutter Bypass
The project would conduct field experiments on topics relevant to levee vegetation in California flood control systems and collect data to characterize the forces leading to windthrow of trees on levees and analyze tree root architecture to determine effects on levee slope stability. Windthrow study would involve conducting tree pulling experiments and root architecture study would involve excavating the roots of trees and standing stumps at 6 selected sites on levees along waterways in the Yuba County, Sutter County, Sacramento County and Stanislaus County.
