Sutter County Water Agency - Drainage Zones of Benefit
The boundaries of the Sutter County Water Agency are coterminous with
the boundaries of the County of Sutter. The principal function of the
Water Agency is to provide, operate and maintain drainage systems within
the Agency boundaries. In late 1997, the County created a three-person
Drainage Crew to maintain and improve drainage systems for the Agency.
In early 1998, the County also allocated a Water Resources Engineer to
assist with drainage improvements and to implement water resource
programs such as groundwater monitoring and Clean Water Act requirements.
A portion of the revenue generated by the drainage zones of benefit is
restricted to improvement, operation and maintenance of the Live Oak
Canal. This revenue is derived from assessments in Water Zones 4, 5,
6, 7 and 8. The operating budget also receives revenue from Property
