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 Taxes.
