$150 Million For Sacramento Region Flood Control Projects

  
Nicole Ortega-Jewell with the Corps' Civil Works Branch says more than $25 million  will ensure the completion of levee work along the American River.

"These will actually be the last remaining sections. They're scattered throughout the American River and actually this will complete all of the work that was authorized back in 1996 and '99."  

The work is scheduled to be finished next year.

$69 million will go to Folsom Dam projects.  

Marysville and Hamilton City levee projects will also be funded.

For the first time, money was allocated for project engineering and design work for the Natomas Levee Improvement Project.
 
Nearly $11 million will go to improvements in South Sacramento at Florin Creek.
