Mid-Valley Area Levee Reconstruction
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (CA) requests $11,000,000 for:
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
Sacramento Valley, CA
The purpose of this project is to reconstruct levees on the Feather and Sacramento Rivers and tributaries that protect over 93,000 acres in five Sacramento Valley counties, with an estimated property value of $97.4 million. Without these necessary levee improvements, this area is endangered by flooding, and the taxpayer will bear much of the cost through federal emergency assistance. It is therefore in the interest of the American taxpayer to provide funding for this project, to mitigate future flood damage and costs.
