The original West Sacramento Project, authorized in 1992, was designed to provide protection to lands, improvements and 31,000 people in West Sacramento. Construction was originally completed in 2005; however, the flood events of 2006 resulted in two levee slips, requiring evaluation and repair work before the project could be turned over to local control for operation and maintenance. In the intervening years, three more slips were identified and repaired, the latest one identified in March 2011 and repair completed in December 2011. A reevaluation of the entire study area is necessary to determine the current conditions of the levees in the West Sacramento study area and develop alternatives for bringing the levees up to a 100-year level of protection. The City of West Sacramento requested a reevaluation of the entire levee system. In March 2009, the local sponsor, West Sacramento Area Flood Control Agency signed the Feasibility Cost Sharing Agreement (FCSA) for the study. In July 2010, the State of California joined as an additional sponsor.

The study area corresponds approximately with the city limit for the City of West Sacramento comprising 13,000 acres of mixed-use land and an estimated population of 47,000 residents, with about 100,000 during business days. The City of West Sacramento is located directly across the Sacramento River from the City of Sacramento, the State’s Capitol. The study area is almost completely bound by existing floodways and levees: the Yolo Bypass to the west, the Sacramento Bypass to the north, and the Sacramento River to the east. Further, the City is bifurcated by the Sacramento River Deep Water Ship Channel (DWSC) and Barge Canal. The associated levee system currently protecting the study area includes nearly 50 miles of levees in Reclamation District (RD) 900, RD 537, Maintenance Area 4, and along the DWSC and Barge Canal.

The FCSA was executed with the West Sacramento Area Flood Control Agency on 26 March 2009 and amended to add the State of California, Central Valley Flood Protection Board as the second non-Federal partner 26 July 2010. For FY12, the project was not included in the President’s budget and is using $2,790,000 in FY11 carryover funding for the GRR. The FCSA is being amended and our partners are including an acceleration of funding clause. We are working towards the Feasibility Scoping Meeting milestone and are currently responding to Headquarters’ comments.

Senate Bill 5 (SB-5) mandates that the State of California and West Sacramento must have a plan in place by 2015 to achieve 200-yr level of flood protection by 2025. Our local partners have been moving forward with local flood risk management projects (Early Implementation Projects, EIP) but have been impacted by the ASA’s decision regarding Section 104 crediting. Utilizing the Section 221 credit mechanism would slow the implementation of additional EIPs since the minimum milestone requirement for Section 221 crediting, per EC 1165-2-208, requires the execution of an in-kind Memorandum of Understanding with the signature of the Division Engineer transmittal letter for the feasibility report.
