Second Yolo County Fentanyl Death

Second Yolo County Fentanyl Death

To date, Yolo County Health & Human Services has received reports of three drug overdoses by residents in Davis, West Sacramento and Woodland associated with ingestion of counterfeit prescription pain pills containing fentanyl; two of which resulted in death.

Regionally, there have been 53 known overdoses and 13 deaths of individuals who may have believed they were consuming the prescription painkiller Norco (acetaminophen/hydrocodone), a commonly abused prescription painkiller.  Initially, health officials believed the overdoses were caused by taking tablets or capsules of Norco that was laced with fentanyl.  Now it is believed that fentanyl pills made to look like Norco tablets are being sold on the street.  Fentanyl is a highly potent, fast acting opiate that is approximately 100 times more powerful than heroin.

Prepared with support from a 2014 U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA) grant, the study analyzes the economic potential of relocating the rail line that runs through the centers of Davis and Woodland, and extending rail service to industrial areas in Woodland, the west side of West Sacramento and the Port of West Sacramento.  Study findings show rail relocation could generate substantial economic benefit in Yolo County and align well with regional flood protection options currently being studied.
