Lower American River Task Force - LARTF

Overview

The Lower American River Task Force (Task Force) focuses on flood, environmental and recreational management issues affecting the lower reach of the American River from Folsom Dam to the Sacramento River. In 2002, Task Force participants cooperated in preparing the Lower American River Corridor Management Plan (RCMP) to provide a framework for integrated management of this reach of the river. The RCMP is intended to serve as a catalyst for updating the 1985 American River Parkway Plan.
