Abstract: This EA addresses two Federal actions. The need for conducting emergency repair activities at Riverside Segment 3 levee in May 2018 has been presented in Section 1.1.2; the need for implementing a permanent repair for the four levees in 2019 has also been presented in Section 1.1. The purpose of the May 2018 work was to close the levee breach to restore some level of flood protection. However, even with the breach closure, part of the levee prism remains compromised and was not fully restored by the flood fight action due to high water level. In the damaged condition, the levee presently provides an approximate 1-year level of protection. If the levee were to fail, there would be an increased risk to life safety, improved property, and public infrastructure. The purpose of the permanent repairs are to restore the pre-damage level of flood protection exhibited prior to the 2018 flood event to protect lives and property from subsequent flooding. The completed flood fight and the proposed levee repairs addressed in this EA are the result of the local sponsor’s requests for assistance.
