Reclamation District No. 1000 (RD 1000) has been providing flood protection and public safety to residents, businesses, schools, and agriculture since 1911. We are a special District formed by the California State Legislature. It is our duty to protect the lives and property in the Natomas Basin from flooding. We maintain 42 miles of levees surrounding Natomas, over 30 miles of large drainage canals and seven pump stations that collect and pump the stormwater and agricultural runoff back into the adjacent river system.
The District is governed by a seven-member Board of Trustees elected by the property owners within the Natomas Basin. The District operates under the direction of the District's General Manager who reports directly to the Board of Trustees. The District Superintendent supervises the daily activities of the field crew and reports to the General Manager.
