It Just Got Easier To Find Your Evacuation Route In An Oroville Dam Emergency


Sutter County Development Services staff, which created the Sutter County Oroville Dam Emergency Evacuation map, has made it easier to find your evacuation route in the event of a future problem with the spillway or the dam that requires evacuation.

A field has been added to the map that allows individuals to look up evacuation routes for specific addresses in Sutter County, including the incorporated cities of Yuba City and Live Oak. View the searchable Oroville Dam Emergency Evacuation Route Map for Sutter County.

Depicted in the map are the intended evacuation routes for an emergency involving Oroville Dam only. Evacuation routes are subject to change depending on actual conditions at the time of the evacuation.

Note that this map does not depict evacuation routes for any other emergency, including a potential or actual levee failure when local roads and highways can be flooded or threatened. Evacuation routes will be determined at the time of the emergency based on what roads are available.

A searchable map as well as a PDF download of the Oroville Dam Flood Evacuation Route Map for Sutter County are linked below. This map was originally designed to be 3 feet by 4 feet. To see detail, please zoom in while viewing the map.

Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP)

The purpose of the Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP) is to assess risk to natural hazards, implement actions to reduce future losses, and maintain eligibility for federal mitigation funds in accordance with the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000. Partners with the County in this planning effort include the Cities of Live Oak and Yuba City and several special districts. Another benefit of this Mitigation Planning Update process is to enhance the floodplain management practice of the cities and county which can help reduce the costs of flood insurance to residents of Sutter County, Yuba City and Live Oak through participation in FEMA's National Flood Insurance Program’s Community Rating System (CRS).

For more information on this process, visit the Local Hazard Mitigation Plan link below.

The Basic Plan was approved by the Board of Supervisors at their regular meeting on October 25, 2011. The updated plan was approved in January of 2015.
