The Corps of Engineers is authorized to provide bank protection and incidental channel improvements on Sacramento River between Chico Landing and Red Bluff in Butte, Glenn, and Tehama Counties at certain sites found to be economically feasible at the time of construction and in light of conditions then prevailing along the river. The authorized plan also provides that the existing project for flood control on Sacramento River be extended to Keswick Dam for the purpose of zoning the area below the dam.
