Feather River Setback Levee Construction

The Three Rivers Levee Improvement Authority, a joint powers agency, was established in May 2004 by the County of Yuba and Reclamation District 784 to finance and construct levee improvements in south Yuba County. 

The Authority’s mission is to provide 200-year levels of flood protection to more than 40,000 residents in Linda, Olivehurst, and Plumas Lake. Four work phases – covering 29 miles of levees – were identified to achieve this goal. More than $405 million is being invested in the levee improvement projects, half of which is being paid for by the state.

Yuba County will be the first urban area in the Central Valley to offer 200-year flood protection.

To date, improvements have been completed on levees along the Bear and Feather Rivers and the Western Interceptor Canal [map]. The last phase of construction involves improvements to levees along the Yuba River. That work is expected to be completed in 2010/mid-2011.

The TRLIA Improvements are projects of the Three Rivers Levee Improvement Authority [Who We Are].
