The Project was developed by a partner group
including Sacramento County Departments of Water Resources & Regional
Parks, Water Forum, City of Rancho Cordova, Soil Born Farms, California Native
Plant Society, and Sacramento Area Flood Control Agency.
The Project will remove
the existing trapezoidal shaped concrete-lined channel and replace it with a
natural winding channel that complements the current land use and will create a
functioning, living stream to improve the environment.
The newly created channel
area will be landscaped as a natural riparian corridor by planting native
trees, shrubs, and groundcovers along the stream banks, wetland areas, and
walking trail with interpretive signs will be constructed to provide public
access from the Dedo Way River Access along the southern edge of the Project
area to the American River Parkway. The
Project will complement 80 acres of recently restored riparian woodlands/native
grasslands to the west and the 50-acre organic farm and native plant nursery to
to the complex nature of the Project, it was determined that the best way to
construct the Project was in two phases.
Phase 1 occurred last fall/winter and Phase 2 will occur this spring
2 construction will start the week of April 18, 2016. The contractor from Phase 1, Hanford Applied
Restoration & Conservation, will construct Phase 2 as well. Construction activities for Phase 2 will be
similar to those of Phase 1 so impacts to the surrounding neighborhood will be
similar to those experienced during Phase 1 last fall/winter.
