The Sacramento River West Side Levee District has completed the levee widening of 500 feet of the Sacramento River West Side Levee near Cecil Lake. The work was completed to combat seepage during flood events. The budget for the project is approximately $200,000. The project included constructing ramps up and down the levee, a water side levee toe road and widening the levee by approximately 8 feet. After the construction was completed, the levee top road was re-graveled. The Reclamation District No. 108 crew completed the maintenance on time and within budget. The photographs below show the site before the project and through construction.
