Caution Boaters and Swimmers! 
We are working to armor 2.5 miles of levee along both sides of the American River between Sacramento State University and Glenn Hall Park.
In this area, we have installed yellow barriers. These are placed in the river to help control sediment stirred up by construction activities;
however, they can present potential hazards to boaters and swimmers.
Please avoid the yellow barriers, follow the center of the river channel through construction, stay away from shorelines where major construction is underway.

Reducing flood risk in Sacramento

Greater Sacramento, California, is often considered to be the most at-risk region in America for catastrophic flooding, relying on an aging system of levees, weirs and bypasses and Folsom Dam to reduce its flood risk. But that system, just like a chain, is only as strong as its weakest link. Together, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, California’s Central Valley Flood Protection Board, California Department of Water Resources, and the Sacramento Area Flood Control Agency have made tremendous progress in reducing the flood risk, but more work remains. Through the Bipartisan Budget Act, the Corps has received full upfront funding to modernize Sacramento's aging flood infrastructure. This allows us to more efficiently implement nearly $1.8 billion in upgrades to Sacramento's flood risk management system. The authorized work includes up to: 13 miles of seepage cutoff walls, 21 miles of bank protection, 5 miles of levee stabilization, 5 miles of levee raises and widening the Sacramento Weir and bypass.
