ABSTRACT: The purpose of the American River Common Features (ARCF) project is to reduce the overall flood risk within the Sacramento metropolitan area, which is one of the most at risk areas for flooding in the United States due to its location at the confluence and within the floodplain of two major rivers.

The non-federal sponsors are the California Natural Resources Agency Central Valley. The American River Basin Study will include the development of detailed hydrologic analysis and models for the basin, which will include consideration of the impacts of climate change.

It will also leverage existing stakeholder groups to identify and evaluate adaptation strategies specific to the American River Basin.

The American River drainage covers square miles of the Tahoe and El Dorado National Forests, including the Granite Chief Wilderness and Desolation Wilderness. Flowing west from the peaks of the northern Sierra Nevada west of Lake Tahoe, its streams gradually converge into the South, Middle and North Forks of the American River.

The American River is one of four major tributaries to the Sacramento River. Figure shows the Study Area – the American River Basin – that is bounded by the Bear River to the north, the Cosumnes River to the south, the Sierra Nevada mountain range to the east, and the Feather and Sacramento Rivers to the west.

The Lower Colorado is the hardest working river in the United States. It is over-tapped, over-allocated and stretched to breaking.

Each year, the Lower Basin uses an average of million more acre-feet of water than it receives in flows from the Upper Colorado River Basin.

The American River (Spanish: Río de los Americanos) is a ~mile-long river in California that runs from the Sierra Nevada mountain range to its confluence with the Sacramento River in the Sacramento the Sacramento River, it is part of the San Francisco Bay watershed.

This river is fed by the melting snowpack of the Sierra Nevada and its many headwaters and tributaries, including Country: United States. Also included in the Lower American River Watershed are the following streams (often referred to as the American River Basin), which are located between the American and Feather River systems: Coon Creek, Markham Ravine, Auburn Ravine, pleasant Grove Creek, Curry Creek, Dry Creek, Cordova Creek (aka Clifton’s Drain), and Arcade Creek.

This book distills best practice approaches to basin planning in large and complex basins and provides an overview of the emerging good practice.

Growing competition for scarce water resources has driven major changes in the way river basin planning is by: Auburn Dam was a proposed concrete arch dam on the North Fork of the American River east of the town of Auburn, California in the United States, on the border of Placer and El Dorado Counties.

Slated to be completed in the s by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, it would have been the tallest concrete dam in California and one of the tallest in the United States, at a height of feet ( Location: Near Auburn, California.
