River Pumps

Marysville

A marker reads:

In 1895 pumps were installed at the confluence of the Yuba and Feather Rivers to protect the City of Marysville from the danger of flooding.

These pumps with a capacity to pump 18,265 gallons per minute, helped to keep Marysville dry during the Great Floods of 1955.

Dedicated the 4th Day of April, 1990
Donated by The Rotary Club of Marysville
