Happy 3.22 Day!
At 11:30 a.m. on January 19th, the USGS gauge on Clear Lake at Lakeport, more commonly known as the "Rumsey Gauge", consistently showed levels at orabove 3.22 feet! This is a cause for celebration because when Clear Lake rises to this level, the District begins to receive the right to release water for irrigation purposes.Hopefully the rains will continue to fill Clear Lake up to 7.56 feet on the Rumsey Gauge, and the District will receive the maximum water allocation.
You can check the progress of the District's water supply by clicking on the "Water Information" button on the left.
Indian Valley Campground Remains Closed
Campground facilities at Indian Valley remain closed due to the continued low water conditions at the reservoir.
Campers who want to enjoy the Walker Ridge area can still use the Bureau of Land Management's Blue Oaks Campground, located approximately 1.5 miles from Indian Valley dam.
The staff regrets any inconvenience that this may cause, and we look forward to reopening the facility when water conditions improve. If you have any questions, please contact Jennifer Reed at the District office.
