A 40 million dollar effort to improve the Santa Maria levee is underway.
The project managers from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers did their best to explain the massive project to folks at an informational meeting Thursday night.
About 30 people showed up. Most of their concerns were about possible traffic and environmental impacts.
Project managers say neither traffic or wildlife will be affected. "The environment is being protected because we have archeologists and biologists on-site to monitor the activities, and so even though we're doing construction it will be environmentally friendly," said Tawny Tran, a project manager.
The goal is to have the levee improvements complete by August 2011.
