When water levels are sufficient to safely allow the production of a fireworks show at Don Pedro Lake, it is attended by thousands and always falls around the 4th of July. Be sure to check the news and events section of the website for its status and date if a show is to be held this year.
Water from Don Pedro Lake is primarily used for irrigating the farm land that falls within the Turlock Irrigation District and Modesto Irrigation District boundaries. It is also used for power generation, and adds to the drinking water supply for City of Modesto. Don Pedro Dam also provides flood control for California’s Central Valley.
