Irrigation Season Ends
Releases from Cache Creek Dam End
The District is ending releases from Cache Creek Dam today in accordance with the Solano Decree. Releases from Indian Valley Dam will end on November 1st, and water deliveries will continue for a short time while water remains in the canals. District staff is appreciative of all of the growers and cooperators who contributed to a productive irrigation season.
Now, the District operations and maintenance staff will be busy making repairs and improvements to our delivery infrastructure which will result in increased reliability and efficiency.
Seasonal Closure of Indian Valley Campground
