"To plan, develop, and manage the conjunctive use of the District's surface and groundwater resources to provide a safe and reliable water supply at a reasonable cost, and to sustain the socioeconomic and environmental well-being of Yolo County."
As of today, June 14, 2021, the water surface elevation and available storage at Indian Valley Reservoir is at approximately 1,377 feet and 11,830 acre-feet, respectively. As discussed in our April 20, 2021 letter, we started releases at Indian Valley Reservoir on April 19 and anticipated the season would last until June 23, 2021.
We are currently on track for releases to continue until June 23, and we are evaluating the potential to lift the allocation for unallocated water sales to occur June 24 through June 28, 2021. Daily orders/deliveries and storage remaining in Indian Valley Reservoir will determine the potential for lifting the allocation and the end-of-season date.
Allocation balances will be updated daily. For allocation balances, please click here.

Indian Valley Boat Ramp 5/10/2021
Boaters are advised that the boat ramp at Indian Valley campground is currently above the water level, and there is a lot of gravel at the bottom of the ramp. These conditions are making launching a boat extremely difficult. The campground remains open. As always, campsites are first come, first served and fees are $15 per night, per vehicle.
Please be advised that due to vandalism, there are very few picnic tables in the campground; please be prepared to provide your own table. The bathrooms are open.
