Yuba County Water Agency

Serving the people of Yuba County

Currently on the River

YCWA constantly monitors river levels and conditions coming from each of the separate dams.



YCWA continuously works to protect and restore the Yuba River’s wild salmon and steelhead runs. 



YCWA’s advanced hydropower facilities enable the Agency to produce enough clean, carbon-free power to 300,000 homes.


Water Supply

Providing a reliable surface water supply to farmers in Yuba County is one of YCWA’s primary missions.



YCWA provides many different recreational options near New Bullards Bar Reservoir.


Flood Management

The single most important reason for the creation of YCWA was to reduce the risk of flooding for the people of Yuba County.



YCWA is currently going through the process to obtain a new FERC license following the expiration of its original one in 2016. 


Groundwater Management

Protecting and enhancing Yuba County’s groundwater aquifer is one of YCWA’s foremost priorities.
