Watermark Farms is a productive row crop farm on the urban edge of West Sacramento, featuring a mile of Sacramento River frontage and prime soil resources blended with a freshwater pond and private lakefront (Glide Lake) providing for some unique recreational aspects with excellent investment value-add angles. Lands to the S. have been permanently preserved making this the last tract of open farmland that might be annexed for development in the future.
The primary source of irrigation water is from a developed riparian water right in the Sacramento River. A 30 hp electric lift-pump station on the river has a slant pump installed in the river and is connected to underground pipeline that flows into field distribution canals. According to statements filed w/DWR, the historic use is nearly 1,380 AF/ year (nearly 4 ac.ft. per net farm acre) an ample supply. The lands to the W. of Glide Lake receive surface water from RD 999. Both of these surface water sources are protected under the North Delta Water Agency settlement agreement.
While you can get lost from civilization on Watermark Farms, in reality, it is just ten minutes from Nugget Market Shopping Center and 15 minutes to Golden 1 Center and Capitol Mall in Sacramento. West Sacramento is on the Interstate 80 corridor linking the State Capitol to the San Francisco Bay Area (just 80 miles away).
From Interstate 80 take Jefferson Blvd. S. to Gregory Ave. and turn L towards the river. Once you get on S. River Road proceed about 1 mile to Watermark Farms northern access gate.
