Properties in and around Linda, Olivehurst, and Plumas Lake have potential flood risk from rivers (Feather, Yuba, Bear) and rain and stormwater (internal drainage). Levees are designed to hold back the rivers to protect against flooding. In addition, rain and stormwater must be physically removed to avoid flood damage to properties and to prevent exposure to contaminants from industrial areas, roadways, and storm drain and sewer overflows. This is called internal drainage.
Reclamation District 784 (RD 784) is the local agency responsible for operating and maintaining both its internal drainage system and the levee system that reduces flood risk for approximately 15,000 properties within its boundaries (map).
Collectively, RD 784 is responsible for:
Both the internal drainage system and the levee system must be maintained to provide a minimum of 100-year flood protection to meet FEMA requirements. The urban levees must be maintained to provide 200-year flood protection in accordance with state law. Consequences of not meeting regulations include the loss of FEMA accreditation for 100-year flood protection, which results in mandatory flood insurance for all properties with a mortgage and building restrictions.
