Water Levels Normal In Natomas

THE NATOMAS BUZZ | @natomasbuzz
Have the Natomas retention basins and canals looked more “full” than normal? They are.
THE NATOMAS BUZZ asked Reclamation District No. 1000 general manager Paul Devereux about the phenomenon.
Once a year, the reclamation district treats area canals with an herbicide to clear them of vegetation. Until the herbicide dissipates, water cannot be released from canals flowing throughout the Natomas region, or flood retention basins like the one pictured above in the North Natomas Regional Park, into the American and Sacramento rivers.
Devereux said the reclamation district has notified city and county officials of the “all clear” and regular releases should resume.
