Community input on the four alternatives is vital to help shape the future of the Carbon River Levee Setback Project planning efforts. A series of open houses, mail notices, surveys and interviews were held and made available to the community, stakeholders and to those directly impacted by this project. This allowed for the community to review, comment, and give input on the alternatives. Comments and input that were received are provided and summarized in the feasibility report document.
Update Oct. 1, 2021: The final report that addresses information and results of the feasibility study are now available for you to view.
The feasibility study develops and evaluates four conceptual alternatives for setting back the existing left bank levee facility on the Carbon River. It also identifies and recommends a preferred alternative. The preferred alternative will be further considered during potential future project phases that include continued land owner and community outreach and coordination. Depending on results from further land owner and community outreach comments and coordination, the project may enter future phases that addresses, preliminary design, permitting and construction issues. Funding and schedule for potential future phases have not been identified.
