Why Can't I Plant Trees on the Surplus Levee?

Summary:
Overview of Salt Lake County Flood Control program and discussion of our largest project, the Jordan River Surplus Canal Levees.

Full Abstract:
Overview of Salt Lake County Flood Control program and discussion of our largest project, the Jordan River Surplus Canal Levees. The Surplus Levees are an important component of Salt Lake County’s Flood Control program. The levees were constructed in 1959 by the United States Army Corps of Engineers; Salt Lake County is the local sponsor partner. The system includes approximately 18 miles of levees. Salt Lake County Flood Control is currently working through a Levee Rehabilitation Project. Levee encroachments including utilities, residential and commercial development, and public infrastructure that are not permitted need to be resolved. This project involves coordinating with not only the USACE but many local government and private agencies. Salt Lake County is also acquiring right-of-way along most of the levee length. This presentation will cover what we have learned, what we are currently working on, and our plans to complete the rehabilitation project.
