The public is invited to meetings next week about two levee repair projects on the American River.
The first will be Tuesday concerning a plan by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to build a seepage cutoff wall 3,300 feet long in the levee on the north bank of the American River, just east of the Natomas East Main Drainage Canal, near Del Paso Road. The meeting is from 4 to 6 p.m. Tuesday at the American River Flood Control District office, 165 Commerce Circle in Sacramento.
The second project involves widening, realigning and strengthening more than 1,300 feet of levee along the north bank of the American River near William Pond Park. This meeting is from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday at the American River Parkway Foundation office, 5700 Arden Way, in Carmichael.
Construction on both projects is set to occur between July and November. They represent small parts of a larger levee improvement project along the American River that began more than a decade ago.
