Canals and Ditches:
Reclamation District 784 maintains over 60 miles of canals, ditches and drainage basins through which storm water is moved to pumping stations where it is pumped into adjacent rivers and out of the District. Garbage and debris dumped into drainage ditches have caused blockages and can cause localized flooding. If you observe anyone dumping objects into any drainage canals, please contact the Yuba County Sheriff’s Office at 530-749-7777 to report the crime.
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.9-4-2020 Updated Public Levee Access Document.pdf
