Homeless Encampments

Urban creeks and rivers throughout Butte County are increasingly used for homeless encampments and choked with invasive plant species.Tackling this problem is intimidating for everyone, but when we get together, urban waterways can once again be the beautiful neighborhood creeks and wildlife habitats they once were.  

Non-emergency reporting of encampments can be direct by phone to the Chico Police Department at (530) 879-4900.

If the encampment is within the City of Chico limits, please report your concern using the City of Chico form. If the encampment is on County unincorporated land, please use the Butte County form. If you are unsure, please use Google Maps to determine the jurisdiction of the area in question before reporting.
