Lower White River Restoration Projects
The Lower White River Restoration projects consist of a reach scale restoration plan that will enhance/restore floodplain and riparian habitat, allow the river room to migrate, and provide increased floodwater and sediment storage. The projects include Stewart Road Bridge replacement, Left Bank Setback, Pacific Point Bar, and 24th Setback Levee. The largest of these projects is the 24th Setback Levee which covers over 170 acres and is planned for construction in 2021 pending issuance of environmental permitting. The Pacific Pointbar and Stewart setback are both undergoing design and acquisition with 5 of the 19 parcels acquired and 5 more in process. All projects combined will restore over 200 acres and 2.4 miles of river.
