Welcome to Butte County

Water years 2012 and 2013 were dry statewide. With 2014 off to a record dry start, Governor Brown took swift action on January 17, 2014 to declare a State of Emergency that will address growing water, agricultural, and economic concerns around the State due to extreme drought conditions. Droughts are a natural disaster and surviving any natural disaster requires planning and preparation. Information contained in this site is designed to help you prepare and respond.
