BACKGROUND

Save the American River Association is working with American River Trees(ART) to oppose the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE)/Sacramento Area Flood Control Agency (SAFCA)/Central Valley Flood Protection Board (CVFPB) levee work on portions of the Lower American River as proposed in the draft SEIS/SEIR. 

Many have seen the erosion protection measures taken at Paradise Beach, Campus Commons Golf Course, H Street Bridge, and Sac State/Howe. These ill-conceived engineering projects resulted in almost total removal of trees and vegetation from the Lower American River and Parkway. The upcoming Contract 3B envisions similar impacts to areas of the River and Parkway between Howe Avenue bridge and Watt Avenue bridge, continuing a mile upstream of the Watt Avenue bridge to the vicinity of Mayhew/Rio Bravo Circle on the River’s south bank, and Estates Drive on the north bank.
