We may be in a drought, but there is a chance of flooding in any winter or
spring in the Sacramento Valley. That’s why October is Flood Awareness Month
in Sutter County.
Flood Awareness Month was created by Sutter County and the
Sutter Butte Flood Control Agency
to help residents understand the threat posed by the Sacramento, Feather, Yuba
and Bear rivers; new federal flood insurance requirements on 1/3 of Sutter
County; and the efforts of the new Sutter Buttes Flood Control Agency to develop
and fund flood control projects.
A special publication, "Flood Aware, Flood Prepare", about
Flood Safety in the Sacramento Valley has been prepared by Sutter County and the
Sutter-Butte Flood Control Agency in cooperation with the City of Yuba City and
the County Of Yuba.
