Document Description
Sediment buildup in portions of the Feather River, exacerbated by the Oroville Dam Spillway incident of 2017, has created dangerous conditions for recreational users, made some boat launch facilities nearly unusable, and has hampered public safety as it has affected emergency vessel launching capabilities. The Proposed Project will improve access to the Feather River and Yuba River by removing sediment at and near the Yuba City Boat Ramp facility. The Project has received funding from the California Natural Resource Agency through Proposition 68 to remove sediment for safety purposes, to restore recreation access to the Feather River, and to restore fish passage at the confluence of the Feather and Yuba Rivers. The Proposed Project would include the following: maintenance dredging of the boat ramp/boat area and the confluence of the Feather River and the Yuba River; dewatering the dredged material in the existing northernmost wastewater ponds at the former Marysville Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) proposed by the City of Marysville for decommissioning; and disposal of the dredged material. Phase 1 of the Project would involve removal of the originally planned 65,600 cy, and Phase 2 of the Project would involve the additional 250,000 cy if additional funding becomes available, for a total of 315,600 cy. The Project would occur between 2021 and 2023, starting in June 2021.
