The irrigation canal is scheduled to close on 15th October every year. this year it closed a few days earlier after four inches of rain on Tuesday 13th. It fills again on 15th April, sometimes sooner in a dry spring. We rely on this rain fed water from Lake Berryessa to irrigate our crops in the summer. For the winter we use our own well. In dry winters our well is used weekly especially when we are planting or germinating crops. The canal is managed by the Solano Irrigation District.
