Document Description
The Project includes a series of flood control improvement structures (levees) designed to meet the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) 0.01 chance, or 100-year, flood event thereby providing flood protection for developed and planned development areas in Thousand Palms and the vicinity. The Project consists of four segments (reaches) composed of levees, channels, culverts, and a sediment basin. The project would support aeolian (wind-driven) and fluvial (water-driven) transport of sand to the Coachella Valley Preserve and Coachella Valley National Wildlife Refuge. Fine sands located in this area provide habitat for the state endangered and federally threatened Coachella Valley Fringe-Toed Lizard and other sensitive sand dwelling species.
