Reclamation District 784
History of RD 784

RD 784 was established in May 1908, and operates under the authority of the State of California's Central Valley Flood Protection Board and the Department of Water Resources. RD 784 covers approximately 29,000 acres including 37 miles of levees, more than 60 miles of internal drainage canals, and nine pumping stations.

The district's boundaries are: North - Yuba River, South- Bear River, West- Feather River, East-Western Pacific Interceptor Canal.  The district encompasses approximately 2,000 commercial buildings and more than 12,500 residences.

A board of trustees made up of 5 local landowners is the local governing body and they are elected to serve 4 year terms.

Reclamation District 784 Board and staff members are not authorized to grant permission to trespass on privately or publically owned land.  RD784 keys will not be issued to anyone to cross the levees to engage in recreational activities.  However, the TRLIA Board has opened legal access to the Feather River Set Back Area at Star Bend Boat Ramp off of Feather River Blvd. 

 The Feather River Setback Levee created 1600 acres of new flood-way in the river bottom. Some of the orchard land is leased to farmers who have a property right over those properties.  It is not legal to trespass on leased land.  Some land has been dedicated as mitigation projects, wave wash buffers or maintenance corridors. Motorized entry is not allowed in any of these areas.  Most importantly, driving on, over or across the levees  is illegal and endangers the structural integrity of the levees. Tens of thousands of scarce maintenance dollars have been spent repairing damage done by unauthorized motor vehicle traffic.

For further information about recreational use of the Feather River Setback areas contact Paul Brunner at 530-749-7841 or by email at


Public Levee Access
Not all levees are owned by the public.Some levees are located on private property and RD784 personnel can only access private property because the State of California holds easement rights for levee maintenance and operations. RD784 cannot give permission for anyone to trespass on private property of another. The following list of levees is provided in the attachment below for information on which levees are open to the public for pedestrian access only. Unauthorized motor vehicles are prohibited on all levees.
