SPL-2021-12-8-KW Riverside Levee Rehabilitation

Los Angeles District
Published Dec. 8, 2021

The project would repair damages to the Riverside Levees, a federally constructed levee system.  The Riverside Levees are on the Santa Ana River in Riverside County, California.  High flows from past storms through this reach of the river as well as migration and impingement of the low-flow channel against the levees resulted in damages requiring repair. 

The overall goals of the repair project are to (1) improve resistance to scour and erosion to better maintain the existing level flood risk minimization, and (2) reduce future in-channel maintenance requirements to avoid and minimize impacts to biological and aquatic resources within the river.

An initial scoping notice pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) circulated on February 12, 2020 announcing preparation of a draft EA.  A draft EA has now been prepared.  In addition, pursuant to the Clean Water Act, a draft 404(b)(1) Analysis has been prepared for discharges of fill within waters of the U.S.  With the notice, the Corps now solicits public review and comments on the two draft documents.

Comments will be accepted from December 9, 2021 to December 23, 2021. Comments can be submitted electronically to:

Alternatively, comments can be mailed to:
