Indian Valley Campground-Seasonal Closure
Indian Valley Campground is closing for the winter on Monday, November 14. The District anticipates reopening the campground in mid-March, depending on weather and road conditions. Please direct any questions to Jennifer Reed at the District office.
The 2016 irrigation season is ramping up, with water being released from Cache Creek and Indian Valley Dams. For canal ride and ditchtender contact information, please click the link below.
The District completed a full, unallocated irrigation season on October 10th.
The new water year, which is meant to depict precipitation and surface water conditions, began on October 1st. Although we begin the water year in a better position compared with 2015, water supplies are still quite limited.
Clear Lake was at 1.50 feet on the Rumsey Gauge on October 1, 2016 compared to 0.90 feet on October 1, 2015; therefore the District is a little closer to receiving irrigation water compared with last year.
Indian Valley Reservoir ended the water year at 1401 feet MSL, over forty feet higher than the previous year, and had approximately 60,000 acre-feet in storage.
