Our Mission: Rock Creek Reclamation District is a Butte County small district. A pro-active district for flood management, damage prevention and groundwater sustainability. Rock Creek Reclamation District represents the farmers and community within the district boundaries.
Rock Creek Reclamation District (RCRD) was initially formed on October 15, 1985 under the State Reclamation Act. The District provides flood control and groundwater sustainability services to approximately 4,644 acres of agricultural and single-family residential parcels in an area surrounding Nord in northern Butte County. The District consists of large agricultural properties and low-density residential uses. The District is located in the Big Chico Creek and Pine Creek Watersheds.
Pine Creek forms a portion of the western boundary above Highway 32. Additionally, Rock Creek flows through the District and joins Mud and Big Chico Creeks in the southern portion of the District. The majority of the Rock Creek Reclamation District has been identified as a 100-year flood xone on Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Flood Insurance Rate Maps. The District is also located in dam failure inundation areas for Shasta and Whiskeytown Dams.
