Plant 6

May contain: outdoors, nature, water, shelter, rural, countryside, and building

Plant 6 is located on the east side of the District approximately one mile north of Elkhorn Boulevard, in the east-central part of the District. It was constructed in 1974 and updated in 1997. This plant is the last one utilized for drainage purposes due to complaints of area residents across the Natomas East Main Drainage Canal (NEMDC), to which it discharges, that use of the plant causes flooding, despite evidence that this is actually a result of the NEMDC Stormwater Pump Station, also referred to as Pump Station D15, keeping its gates closed and backing water up the NEMDC. This plant has not been operated in at least 15 years.
