Hamilton City Set-Back Levee
The Hamilton City Flood Risk Reduction and Ecosystem Restoration Project is the first multi-benefit project designed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in the United States with the dual goals of improving flood protection for Hamilton City and improving environmental conditions of the Sacramento River. The Project was designed to:
- construct a new 6.8-mile set-back levee, and
- restore 1,361 acres of native riparian habitat.
