Repair Work Underway on Levees in Sutter County

SUTTER COUNTY -- Heavy winter flows on the Feather River are prompting urgent levee repairs in Yuba City.

The levee near the Fifth Street Bridge is being reinforced with riprap -- basketball-sized boulders -- to protect the city.

The Sutter Butte Flood Control Agency is also putting a slurry wall in for a levee south of Yuba City that saw boils and seepage this winter that required temporary repair.
