We do everything we can to prevent flooding - and because of the incredible investment of Yuba Water Agency and our many local, state and federal partners, Yuba County is well on its way to being one of the best protected communities at risk of flooding in California. But, anytime you live near a levee or below a dam, you are at risk of flooding. There is always a possibility that a storm will come along that is bigger than our system was designed to handle.
In addition to buying flood insurance (even if it is not required!), there are things you can do to prepare yourself, your home and your family for flooding.
