Document Description
The Sespe Creek Levee Improvements Project includes structural improvements along a section of the existing Sespe Creek Levee, on the east side of Sespe Creek between Old Telegraph Road and SR 126 near the City of Fillmore. The project would raise the existing levee height by one to six feet along a 1,543-foot-long section, and add a 321-foot-long retaining wall along the landward side of a portion of the levee, where existing residences are located. The project would also correct existing design deficiencies identified by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, while maintaining recreational opportunities along the Sespe Creek Bike Trail. The project would facilitate certification of the existing levee structure by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, and remove existing development in Fillmore from flood hazard areas.
