Project: Natomas Cross Canal Stability Berm and Channel Habitat Enhancements Project

Description: This project will improve flood protection through strengthening the Natomas Cross Canal (NCC) north levee, and the enhancement of the aquatic and riparian habitat within the NCCchannel. The primary purpose of the NCC SB & CHE Project will be to construct a stability berm along approximately 11,000 feet of the NCC levee, in areas that have not been previously repaired, and to plant additional riparian vegetation to act as a natural wind-induced wave defense. The project will also enhance local aquatic and riparian habitat through vegetation management; terracing and grading the in-channel geometry, near the NCC and Sacramento River confluence; and reconfigure downstream portions of the NCC into a more meandering channel.
