Big machines and aerial views: the emergency work on the Yuba City levee on track

There’s great news on the levee repair front. The Sutter Butte Flood Control Agency has been operating three different “headings” to speed completion of the emergency repair project at Yuba City before there is any threat from high water this winter.
