Established in 1959 by an act of the State Legislature and headquartered in historic Marysville, California, Yuba County Water Agency is a dynamic, progressive, well-respected public agency that owns and operates four dams with a storage capacity of roughly 1 million acre-feet of water and associated powerhouses capable of generating approximately 397 Mw of energy.


The primary functions of the Agency are development and sale of hydroelectric power, flood control, fisheries enhancement, recreation, conservation and storage of water and wholesale of water to member districts. The Agency has an annual budget exceeding $37 million.


A leader in water transfers and fisheries restoration, YCWA is involved in many constructive efforts with local, state and federal agencies, and conservation groups.
