Am I in a Flood Zone?

The Delta has 1,100 miles of levees protecting both rural and urban areas. In many of these areas, there is a greater risk of flooding than there is a risk of fire. Contra Costa, Sacramento, San Joaquin, Solano, and Yolo counties are all within the Levee Flood Protection Zone.

  • Flood Risk Notification
    The Flood Risk Notification Program communicates flood risk awareness to the public and individual property owners, as well as local, state, and federal agencies.
  • My Hazards
    MyHazards is a tool for the general public to discover hazards in their area (earthquake, flood, fire, and tsunami) and learn steps to reduce personal risk. 

 Any place with a 1% or higher chance of experiencing a flood each year is considered high risk. There is at least a one-in-four chance of flooding during a 30-year mortgage.
