The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will award $13 million to complete the construction of the Marysville Ring Levee Project, which encircles Marysville as well as major transportation corridors, and will provide protection against 200-year floods for the city.

The announcement was made Thursday by the office of U.S. Rep. John Garamendi, a Fairfield Democrat whose 3rd Congressional District includes Marysville. He is a senior member of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee and the Water Resources Subcommittee.
