Urrutia Pond and Bank Restoration Project
cbec is part of a team preparing the SMARA reclamation and restoration plan for the Urrutia Pond and associated river bank in the Lower American River Parkway.
cbec was instrumental in providing support for the development and successful $5 million grant application to DWR FESSRO to support design and implementation of the river bank restoration piece of the project. Bank restoration along the Lower American River adjacent to the Urrutia pond involves removal of disused concrete rubble on the riverbank, creation of an inset floodplain terrace, and establishment of riparian upland and shaded riverine aquatic habitat (SRA). The site will be used to provide environmental mitigation for local levee projects in the Sacramento area.
