LAR Task Force

The Water Forum

Lower American River

The Lower American River Task Force focuses on flood, environmental, and recreational management issues affecting the lower reach of the American River from Folsom Dam to the Sacramento River.  In 2002, Task Force participants collaborated in preparing the Lower American River Corridor Management Plan (RCMP) to successfully provide a framework for integrated management of this reach of the river.

Recent issues addressed by the Task Force include levee vegetation management, the update of the Folsom Dam Water Control Manual, bank protection measures, and the Lower American River Flow Management Standard.
