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).
The mission of Reclamation District No. 1000 is public safety. Our sole purpose is to protect the lives and property of those living and working in the Natomas basin by safely maintaining the perimeter levee system protecting the basin as well as operating the interior main canals and pump stations.
