Project: Ventura River Levee (VR 1) Critical Repair Design Project

Description: The VR-1 levee system is approximately 2.65 miles, with an embankment height up to 10 feet above natural ground on the landward side. The leveeā€™s earthen berm is protected by loose riprap and grouted riprap with an access road that runs along the top which is approximately 18 to 26 feet wide. A recent study was determined that the VR-1 levee system does not currently meet National Flood Insurance Program requirement and it will require rehabilitation.
