As of 2023-4, BCRCD is one of 25+ special districts, local governments and nonprofits who are helping re-design Butte County's Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP). An up-to-date LHMP is a requirement to keep our county eligible for FEMA funding. The 2-24 process is expeccted to be concluded on 9/30/24.
BCRCD is committed to making sure the final document reflects a clear-eyed assessment of the hazards facing Butte County's farmers, ranchers, rural residents, and all the amazing native species we share this beautiful place with. That includes our precious spring-run Chinook salmon in Butte Creek.
