This study was authorized by the Energy and Water Development Appropriation Act of 1987 Public Law 99-591 to evaluate the integrity of the Sacramento River Flood Control Project levees and, if necessary, determine the Federal interest in reconstruction work to restore the Congressionally authorized levee design. The study area includes the Sacramento River and tributaries from Red Bluff to Collinsville and was divided into five phases. This programmatic EISEIR describes the alternative plans, resources in the area, potential impacts of the alternatives on these resources, and mitigation strategies. Alternative plans include drainage improvements, raising levees, cutoff walls and stabilizing berms. Unavoidable impacts to environmental resources will be mitigated to minimize or compensate for the impacts. The discussion is general in scope since further detailed analyses will be performed for each phase of the study and environmental documents will be prepared.
