Created in 1994, West Sac Flood Protect coordinates, funds and constructs major flood risk reduction projects and spearheads West Sacramento-area flood risk reduction efforts. It is made up of members from the city of West Sacramento, Reclamation District 900 and Reclamation District 537. The legal name is the West Sacramento Area Flood Control Agency.
More than 52 miles of levees protect West Sacramento’s 50,000 citizens and 13,000 acres of property from the Sacramento River. Federal and state laws mandate levee improvements for the City. West Sacramento is working to achieve a minimum 200-year level of flood protection as mandated by California's 2008 Central Valley Flood Protection Act.
