Important news about power restoration. Power will be restored in some areas much sooner than the September 20th official estimate for the Lake Berryessa Region just sent out by PG&E.

Progress on the Berryessa Highlands power restoration is very good, and Highlands power is expected to be restored THIS WEEK. Circle Oaks has power due to a generator. Capell Valley, Berryessa Pines, Wragg Canyon/Pleasure Cove/Markley Cove will take longer.

10:30 AM ESCORT/ACCESS LOCATION CHANGE... aparently they decided to change the escort location without telling anyone... so sorry about the change, but now the NEW ESCORT/BERRYESSA ACCESS LOCATION is @ HWY 121 @ Circle Oaks.

Hundreds of utility workers are out cutting trees, installing power poles, running power lines. Residents need to stay out of their way.

There are no recreational facilities available for visitors. All campgrounds and launch facilities are closed indefinitely. All Bureau of Reclamation facilities are closed indefinitely. There is no prediction as to whether the lake will be open at some level for Labor Day.

The official word from Napa County through Supervisor Alfredo Pedroza this morning is that they are trying to repopulate our area within 2-3 days pending successful road and utility work.

Here’s another neighborhood icon, Darwin’s Bull, still standing in front of Darwin’s burned house on Eastridge Road in the Berryessa Highlands. It is a sculpture made of steel. Hopefully a symbol for the recovery of Lake Berryessa.

The Lake Berryessa Disaster Keeps Spreading

Unfortunately fires are spreading in the Rimrock Road area of the Berryessa Highlands. We had hoped that the Highlands had dodged a bullet, but no such luck. Firefighting resources are limited due to the spread of the fire into Vacaville.
