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.
Plant 6 was constructed in 1974 as a result of an agreement between the City of Sacramento and the District to handle runoff water from a portion of South Natomas. Plant 6 was later updated in 1997.
Plant 6 is typically a last resort for drainage purposes due to resident concerns. The plant sits across from the Natomas East Main Drainage Canal (NEMDC), to which it discharges. This plant has not been operated in more than 15 years.
