Tehama County Flood Control & Water Conservation District

Ryan Teubert
Flood Control & Water Resources Manager
(530) 385-1462

The Tehama County Flood Control & Water Conservation District was originally established in 1957 by the Tehama County Flood Control and Water Conservation District Act. This Act defined the boundary and territory of the District as follows: "all that territory of the County of Tehama lying within the exterior boundaries thereof." 

Sustainable Groundwater Management Act
On September 16, 2014, Governor Brown signed into law a package of bills (SB1168, AB1739 and SB1319) collectively called the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act. The Tehama County Flood Control and Water Conservation District was recognized by DWR as the Exclusive Groundwater Sustainability Agency on February 11, 2016, for the 11 groundwater subbasins or the portions of those subbasins located within Tehama County. The District also submitted a Basin Boundary Adjustment in March 2016 to incorporate the small portion of the Colusa Subbasin located within Tehama County into the Corning Subbasin. The District is currently in the process of forming a Groundwater Commission, that once formed, will start the process of developing a Groundwater Sustainability Plan as required by the legislation before the January 31, 2022 deadline.

Tehama County Small Community Flood Risk Reduction Program
The County is developing Flood Risk Reduction Feasibility Studies for the small communities of Gerber and Vina. The studies will identify alternatives to reduce flood risk in each community. From these alternatives a preferred alternative will be selected, along with an implementation plan that considers project cost and potential funding sources. A series of community meetings will be held to gather community input and provide information on proposed alternatives.

The program is made possible through a fully funded grant from the California Department of Water Resourcesí (DWR) Small Community Flood Risk Reduction Program (SCFRRP). To receive project updates, please contact Public Outreach Coordinator Kim Floyd at kim@floydcommunications.com, or call (916) 838-2666.

AB3030 Groundwater Management Plan
For the purposes of carrying out the goals and objectives established within the AB3030 Groundwater Management Plan, the boundaries of the plan area will include the County of Tehama and the Western Tehama Highlands Area, Eastern Tehama Highlands Area, and the Redding Groundwater Basin and Sacramento Valley Groundwater Basin to the extent that they lie within the jurisdiction of the District, but do not include any land outside Tehama County.
