Drought Closing Campground In Calif.
The Yolo County, Calif., Flood Control and Water Conservation District announced that the Indian Valley Reservoir Campground will be closing indefinitely on Jan. 27, the Lake County Record-Bee reported.
The road leading into the campground will be locked and no access of any kind will be permitted.
Jennifer Reed of the district said the reason for the closure is due to extreme drought conditions.
Water supplies in the reservoir are very low and the district is closing the campground to help protect water quality in the remaining water stores.
In addition, the intake pump for the water treatment plant is above the water line, thus eliminating the ability to produce potable water for drinking and sanitation.
