1 Identifying and Evaluating Levee Improvement Alternatives – The City of West Sacramento Michael J. Vecchio, P.E. Watershed Planning and Design Sacramento, CA PRESENTED AT: Association of State Flood Plain Manager’s Conference 20 May 2010

2 Purpose and Scope Analyze problems and opportunities associated with existing levee system and its upgrade Define levee system upgrade alternatives Evaluate alternatives with respect to technical adequacy, environmental and community impact, and construction costs Recommend upgrade alternatives for all currently deficient levee reaches

3 Levee Deficiencies Evaluated Geometry Freeboard Stability (static and rapid drawdown) Seepage (through- and underseepage) Erosion Seismic Vulnerability Vegetation*

4 Data Sources West Sacramento Levee System Problem Identification and Alternatives Analysis Volume 1: Geotechnical Problem Identification (Kleinfelder, 9/21/2007) Phase 1 Geotechnical Evaluation Report, West Sacramento (URS, 11/2007) West Sacramento Levee System: Problem Identification Report; Erosion Assessment and Treatment Alternatives (NHC, February, 2008) West Sacramento Levee Evaluation Project: Draft Problem Identification Report (HDR, 4/28/2008)

15 Evaluating Alternatives System Continuity Community Impact Environmental Impact Operation and Maintenance Costs Construction Cost

16 Mitigation Alternative Evaluation Criteria: system continuity, community impact, environmental impact, operation and maintenance cost, construction cost Qualitative Evaluation – ‘negative’, ‘average’, ‘positive’ Scoring – Negative = -1 – Average = 0 – Positive = 1
