The District has received several inquiries regarding the replacement of fencing along the levee.
Certain sections of existing white tube steel fences were removed as part of the levee raising project. The levee raising resulted in changes to the fencing angles and connections.
When deciding on the type of replacement fencing, the Board considered the cost of fabricating new tube steel fencing, as well as maintaining the existing tube steel fencing. Based on the cost difference, the Board elected to install corral style fencing. The corral style fencing will be painted dark green and the project, including the installation of gates, is expected to be completed by February 1, 2021.
As part of the project, we are looking at whether new fencing at certain locations is appropriate.
