Sacramento River Bank Protection Project

Originally authorized by Section 203 of the Flood Control Act of 1960, the Sacramento River Bank Protection Project is a long-term flood risk management project designed to enhance public safety and help protect property along the Sacramento River and its tributaries.

The Sacramento River has a history of flooding due to a number of contributing factors. The goal of the SRBPP is to evaluate the levees bordering the river and reduce stream bank erosion along them to minimize the threat of a flood along the Sacramento River.

While the original authorization approved the rehabilitation of 430,000 linear feet of levee, the 1974 Water Resources Development Act added 405,000 linear feet to the authorization and a 2007 bill authorized another 80,000 linear feet for a total of 915,000 linear feet of project. The Corps is set to release a Post Authorization Change Report, including an Environmental Impact Statement, to address the effects of the latest authorization.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Sacramento District is responsible for implementation of the project in conjunction with its non-Federal partner, the California Central Valley Flood Protection Board.
