Present Land Use
The Wildlands Conservancy’s Whitewater Preserve is located along the banks of the Whitewater River north of the I-10 Freeway crossing in the County of Riverside. The existing facilities, campgrounds, and sensitive habitat are currently protected from damaging flows in the river by an older earthen levee system. The levee was originally constructed by the Whitewater Trout Company which previously owned the property. This existing system is currently experiencing erosion and bank failures and it is anticipated that the existing system would not provide adequate flood protection during a 100-year (one-percent annual chance) storm event.

Document Description
The Project is for a replacement levee at the Whitewater Preserve for the purposes of continued flood protection for up to 100-year flood events. The parcel is designated Open Space and zoned Controlled Development Areas.
