MGE, a joint venture partner with Hultgren-Tillis, Taber Consultants and Genterra in GHT2 LLC, was responsible for design of levee improvements along an 18,000-foot-long segment of the left bank of the Knights Landing Ridge Cut from approximately levee mile (LM) 2.8 to 5.0 (site 12), LM 2.0 to 2.8 (site 12A), LM 1.6 to 2.0 (site 13), near Knights Landing, California. The project is part of the Sacramento River Flood Control Project and provided for the construction of seepage berms adjacent to the levee to control through seepage. The work included surveying and topographic mapping, review of existing subsurface data and laboratory test results; determination of design recommendations for through seepage and slope stability; preparation of construction plans and specifications; Design Documentation Report (DDR); identification of relocations including utility relocations; development of right of way and temporary construction easement requirements; Engineering Consideration Instructions for Field Personnel (ECIFP) report, and a MCASES MII cost estimate.
