The Yuba River Development Project

Yuba Water Agency owns and operates the Yuba River Development Project. Our House and Log Cabin dams divert water into New Bullards Bar Reservoir, and water released from New Bullards Bar Dam travels to the New Colgate and Narrows II powerhouses, where it is used to generate renewable, carbon-free electricity.  

Nestled in the beautiful foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, the Yuba River Development Project significantly reduces flood risk and ensures a reliable water supply for the people of Yuba County. The revenue earned from sales of hydropower and water are reinvested in the county, through projects and grants within our mission areas.
