Elk Grove levee poses flooding concerns | News
ELK GROVE, Calif. - The flooding season is still a ways away for the Sacramento region, but it's already on the minds of many Elk Grove residents.
A four-mile levee lined with trees, shrubs and plants runs directly behind the Stonelake apartment complex near Elk Grove Blvd. And while aesthetically pleasing, the vegetation could impede prevention efforts in the event of a flood.
The City of Elk Grove is holding a community meeting Wednesday night at the Stonelake Apartment Complex to gather input from residents and share information about the estimated $20,000 project to remove the greenery.
Stonelake residents face some inconveniences once remediation efforts begin in March, but the project is not scheduled to last too long.
The project will be funded by city dollars.
