Army Corps' Santa Ana Riverbed Project Continues (July 2021)

The Army Corps of Engineers (ACOE) project in the Santa Ana riverbed continues to move forward. The initial slope preparation work is complete for the entire stretch of the project. However, much work remains with additional slope backfill, sand, and rock placement. The ACOE has installed vibration monitors at locations near homes close to the project site and will be communicating directly with residents regarding their concerns. Increased noise and potential vibrations are anticipated later this summer, but the ACOE will engage in an outreach effort to affected housing tracts to provide advance notice of what to expect. City staff will continue working with the contractors to help minimize impacts on the surrounding community and continue participating in project update meetings to help address residents' concerns.
