The City of West Sacramento participates in the voluntary program called Community Rating System (CRS). The program rewards communities for following specific floodplain management activities by providing a discount on flood insurance.
The CRS uses a Class rating system that is similar to fire insurance rating to determine flood insurance premium reductions for residents. The Classes are rated from 10 to 1. The City is currently at a rating of 6 as of May 1, 2017, which offers residents and business owners a 10% discount on flood insurance premiums.
The main goals of the CRS are: 1) reduce flood damage to insurable properties 2) strengthen the insurance aspects of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and 3) foster comprehensive floodplain management.
