Document Description
The Lower Elkhorn Basin Levee Setback Project ("proposed project") would entail the following flood-risk reduction elements contemplated under DWR's Central Valley Flood Protection Plan and its related Sacramento Basin-Wide Feasibility Study. The proposed project would entail the following flood-risk reduction elements: (1) widening the Yolo Bypass by constructing a setback levee approx. 1,500 feet east of the Tule Canal in the Lower Elkhorn Basin (between I-5 and the Sacramento Bypass), (2) widening the Sacramento Bypass by constructing a setback levee approx. 1,500 feet north of the existing levee (3) potential degrading of all or portions of existing levees; and (4) implementing ecosystem improvements in the lower Elkhorn Basin to mitigate project impacts.
