Document Description
Yolo County is proposing to implement the Proposed Project to provide flood protection for the community of Knights Landing. The purpose of the Proposed Project under the Small Community Flood Risk Reduction Program is to attain a 100-year level of flood protection for the community of Knights Landing and reduce the flood risk to the Knights Landing Basin while sustaining agriculture and the regional economy, providing safe access to the river, and improving the riverine habitat viability. The Proposed Project includes three elements: the Sacramento River Right Bank Levee improvements to address seepage and freeboard deficiencies using cutoff walls and seepage stability berms; the Knights Landing Ridge Cut improvements to widen and raise the levee; and the Portuguese Bend multi-benefit enhancement area to restore habitat by controlling invasive species, planting native species, and implementing an ongoing management and monitoring program. Yolo County as the lead agency, with the California Governor's Office of Emergency Services, the Department of Water Resources and the Knights Landing Ridge Drainage District as responsible agencies, is in the process of developing the engineering design for these three elements.
