Project: The Wildlands Conservancy - Flood Control Improvement Project

Description: TWC will secure professional services for the design, environmental review and permitting work for the levee replacement at the Whitewater Preserve

Reference Number: 38500000P010027

Implemented By: The Wildlands Conservancy

Objective: The Project will protect against flood damage or destruction to the Preserve as well as the large riparian habitat areas around the Preserve that support several endangered or threatened species of riparian birds. Water quality will be protected by preventing flooding that could bring debris, contaminants and sewage from the Preserve downstream, and will reduce the risk of drain blockage in downstream areas; thereby maintaining the current flow of floodwater to keep current pattern of sand transport that supports sand dune plan and animal species downstream. Furthermore, the Preserve is a widely visited recreational and educational site that provides access to the Sand to Snow National Monument and the Pacific Crest Trail and serves nearby economically disadvantaged communities that are otherwise underserved by outdoor recreational facilities; hence the Project will maintain recreational and educational benefits of the watershed for local residents and tourists, which in turn boosts local economy.
