HOW DID OUR LEVEES HOLD UP? ARE WE PREPARED FOR SPRING MELT?
Learn about how the west Feather River levee fared during recent storm events and the Oroville Spillway incident. Specifically, SBFCA representatives will cover:

  • Emergency repairs and plans (recent and near-term future)
  • Feather River West Levee Project update
  • Funding update (state, federal and local)

Recent storm events, the Oroville spillway issue, and fluctuation in river flows have tested the strength of repaired levee segments and intensified the need for critical levee repairs in Yuba City, south of Star Bend and along the Sutter Bypass. While repaired levees performed as expected, $5 million in emergency repairs were constructed to mitigate boils and seepage in portions of levee that have yet to be repaired south of Yuba City. More significant fixes are needed for critically at-risk segments of the levee, in addition to planned work on the levee along Laurel Avenue and within the Oroville Wildlife Area.
