American River Common Features

Why are there metal tags on trees along the American River Parkway?
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District is working with our partners, the Central Valley Flood Protection Board and the Sacramento Area Flood Control Agency, to study additional necessary levee improvements in order to further reduce the flood risk for the City and County of Sacramento, Calif.

The project is called the American River Common Features Project. As part of this investigation, the Corps is surveying all levee penetrations, encroachments (like piers and power lines) and trees to have a full inventory of these features on or near the levee. The survey is being performed to address public safety, which is the Corps' overriding mission. The Corps is evaluating possible construction of additional levee improvements to provide flood risk reduction for the city. The information gathered as part of the inventory will be used to evaluate any potential safety issues with any of these features.

Why are some trees tagged and marked with orange paint?
Trees were tagged and marked to assure that it was included in the inventory. The markers contain a number for identification in the inventory. A tree that has been tagged and marked does not mean the tree will be removed. The orange paint is a water-based paint that will eventually wear off.

How long will this continue?
As of October 2011, the survey is 100 percent complete.

The final evaluation will include preparation of National Environmental Policy Act and California Environmental Quality Act compliance documents for public review and comment. Public meetings for review and comments of these documents have yet to be determined, and will be announced through the press and our social media sites.
