The city of Sacramento was built were the Sacramento River and the American River meet in the northern part of California's Central Valley. The Sacramento River, on the city's western border, is the city's namesake.
The oldest incorporated city in California, Sacramento was incorporated in 1850. The city adopted its current charter in 1920 and, as a charter city, is exempt from many of the laws and regulations passed by the California legislature. Ironically, Sacramento is the state capitol, the place where the laws and regulations are passed.
The city has been devastated by several floods over the years. The Sacramento and American Rivers crested simultaneously in 1850, and the resulting flood sparked a cholera and flu epidemic which affected the city for years.
Governor Leland Stanford had to attend his inauguration in a boat due the flooding in 1861. The flooding was the largest in California recorded history and lasted for forty-five (45) days. In an effort to curtail future floods within the city, Sacramento city leaders raised the level of the downtown area. The first floor of buildings became basements visible today as the Sacramento Underground; however, these measures didn't stop mother nature.
In 1986, February brought a series of storms and Sacramento saw 11.7 inches of rain in an 11-day period. The resulting floods highlighted the need for better flood management techniques. Dam operators have started leaving space for water storage at the beginning of the rainy season and release excess water sooner. These new techniques have not prevented flood but may have mitigated some of the damage flooding might have caused with their implementation.
Today, the rivers that cause so much devastation are widely used for recreation. The American River has a 5-mph speed limit for all power boats. As a result, the river is a haven for rafters and kayakers.
