You’re in Good Hands

Since 1989, SAFCA has been doing the important work of keeping the region's residents safe from catastrophic flooding. Because Sacramento is situated in one of the most flood-prone regions in the nation, our projects and leadership are critical to minimizing the impacts of flooding on human life and the environment.
