District Facts

Modoc County is located in the extreme northeast corner of California wherein the western spirit of integrity and hard work still resides. Farming and ranching remain as the economic backbone of the county with agriculture generating $62.5 million of products sold. Modoc County is the third largest county in the state with 2.6 million acres, and has the third smallest population with 9,398 residents.

The Central Modoc Resource Conservation District (CMRCD) was started in 1966 under authority of the State of California. Governed by a seven member Board of Directors, representing local farmers and businessmen.

The District has coordinators to manage and implement technical and educational projects of the district. The CMRCD has administrative support in the running of the business; and collaborative support of many local agencies and organizations.

Our watershed contains 26 million acres in the NE corner of California and supplies 20% of the total water flowing to the Sacramento River System. The Modoc region is also part of the large migratory bird flyway. The relationships between ranching, farming, wildlife and water are deeply intertwined.
