Horseshoe Bend levee
The Horseshoe Bend levee on Bethel Island, Calif., shown at right Aug. 16, 2011, is slated for an upgrade under the CALFED Levee Stability Program - an effort to quickly fix urgent levee problems in the imperiled Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta while a longer-term plan for reducing flood risk throughout the Delta is developed. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District is studying how best to strengthen the levee, the weakest point in the levee system surrounding the island, home to more than 2,500 people.
