Project: Geotechnical Evaluation of San Lorenzo Creek levees, in the unincorporated areas of Alameda County

Description: San Lorenzo Creek levees were constructed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and maintained by the Alameda County Flood Control Water Conservation District. FEMA has determined that the levees are not certifiable and a Provisional Accredited Levee Agreement (PAL) was not offered to the community. The geotechnical evaluation includes performing a field geotechnical exploration program, soil testing, engineering analysis, and final written report.

Reference Number: 3860-P84-101

Implemented By: Alameda County Flood Control and Water Conservation District

Objective: A levee geotechnical evaluation report is a primary document needed to fulfill the requirements of a Provisional Accredited Levee Agreement with FEMA and is also necessary to achieve levee certification. A geotechnical report will confirm that the levee system can contain the base water surface profile or identify at what level elevation the levee is likely to fail. It can also identify areas for improvement. The objective of this type of project is to produce such a report for each flood control structure evaluated.
