Storm Season is Here!

Storm Season is Flood Season...Are you prepared?

Glenn County is particularly vulnerable to flood due to it's location in the Sacramento Valley and it's many creeks, streams and the Sacramento River. Releases from reservoirs, both within and north of Glenn County, contribute to increased flows in the waterways during high water years.
