Abstract: The purpose of the Sutter Basin Pilot Feasibility Study (SBPFS) is to investigate and determine the extent of Federal interest in plans that reduce flood risk to the Sutter Basin in Sutter and Butte Counties. This report: (1) assesses the risk of flooding; (2) describes a range of alternatives formulated to reduce flood risk; and (3) identifies a Recommended Plan (RP) for implementation. The RP consists of levee improvements to existing levees of the Sacramento River Flood Control Project extending along approximately 41 miles of the Feather River. The RP would provide higher levels of flood risk management to local communities. Following public and governmental agency review, this final report will be finalized and submitted to Headquarters, USACE, for review and approval, then transmitted to Congress for recommended project authorization. Federal project construction would be dependent upon Congressional appropriation of funding for the Federal share of the project. Following release of the draft FR/EIR/SEIS for public comment in June 2013, SBFCA initiated construction of the Feather River West Levee Project (FRWLP), which is similar to the recommended plan. The non-federal costs incurred by SBFCA and the State of California in implementing the FRWLP are eligible for credit as non-federal cost share toward potential future USACE construction of recommended plan features.
