Mission, Responsibility and Vision Statements
Reclamation District No 1000’s mission is flood protection for the Natomas Basin providing for the public’s health and safety by operating and maintaining the levees, and the District’s canals and pump stations in a safe, efficient and responsible manner.
If a levee problem is spotted, the District is prepared to respond with materials and equipment. The District has a stockpile of sandbags and rock to initiate a flood fight. Should the need be greater than the available resources, the District will call upon local contractors who are ready to respond 24 hours a day, seven days a week to an emergency with major equipment, flood fight materials and labor as necessary. It is very important for residents to stay away from a flood fight operation for their own safety. If you see a problem during a flood, you should immediately contact the District office at 916-922-1449. (Alternatively, you may also contact the State-Federal Flood Center at 1-800-952-5530).
