Courtland Feasibility Study


In 2017, Sacramento County received grants from the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) Small Communities Flood Risk Reduction Program (SCFRRP) to complete feasibility studies to reduce flood risk to six Delta Legacy Communities in the north Delta, including: Hood, Courtland, Locke, West Walnut Grove, Ryde, and East Walnut Grove.

Courtland is located along the left bank of the Sacramento River approximately 20 miles downstream and southwest of downtown Sacramento along the Sacramento River, approximately 4.1 miles downstream of Hood. Levees which protect the tract of land known as Pearson District where the Delta Legacy of Courtland is located are maintained by Reclamation District 551 (RD 551).
