  Flood Insurance - Is Still Required for Approximately...

Flood Insurance Is Still Required for Approximately 6,000 South Area Properties.

Approximately 6,000 South Area properties will remain subject to the Federal requirement to carry flood insurance until SAFCA and its flood control partners have made additional improvements to South Area flood control facilities. 

Improvements include, but are not limited to, strengthening levees along several of the creeks, including Morrison Creek, that flow through the area.  SAFCA estimates it will take three to five years to complete this work if sufficient local, state and federal funds are available.

SAFCA and the City of Sacramento will notify property owners directly when the property owners’ home or building is released from the Federal flood insurance requirement.
