Flood Risk

Am I at Flood Risk? 

The entire Natomas Basin is considered a floodplain meaning you, your neighbors, local businesses, and area farmland are all technically at flood risk. This is why we, as a Reclamation Special District, exist, to "reclaim" the land from potential flood waters and keep the Natomas community safe from flood disasters. 

Does living in a flood zone mean I need flood insurance? 

As of right now, property owners in the Natomas Basin who have a federally-backed mortgage will still need flood insurance as the levee improvements are not complete.
