Abstract : This report supplements the December 1991 feasibility report for the American River Watershed Investigation. Specifically, it: 1) Reassesses the risk to the Sacramento area of flooding from the American River. 2) Reassesses individual flood protection measures to reduce the risk. 3) Describes a range of alternatives, including combinations of individual measures, to increase flood protection to Sacramento. 4) Presents three candidate flood protection plans. 5) Identifies from the candidate plans the locally preferred plan, which is also the Federal selected plan. 6) Outlines the process for implementing the selected plan and important future actions. This report has two parts: a main report, which focuses on the flood protection alternatives, and a supplemental environmental impact statement/environmental impact report. The report was requested by Congress and reflects information and comments from extensive review by both the public and governmental agencies.
