Welcome to Reclamation District 800
For nearly a century, Reclamation District 800 has been the trusted source of flood protection for the Byron Tract, including the community of Discovery Bay. Our levee system, like our community, is one-of-a-kind. We don’t quite conform, and that’s what makes us special.
Our levees provide the backbone for the state’s largest inland marina and act as a gateway to the Sac/San Joaquin Delta – a recreational playground for boaters and sport fishers, among others.
Our quality of life – most especially our safety – depends upon the strength of our levees.
Our levees protect more than 7,000 acres, 3,600 agricultural and residential properties – and many thousands of lives – from flooding. That protection doesn’t happen by chance. It requires ongoing maintenance, improvements and repairs. That’s our job.
We’re vigilant about improving and maintaining our levees. We’re also fiercely protective of our great quality of life. After all, we want to keep river waters where we can enjoy them – in the river.
