THREE MILE PIPELINE USERS
The water users that are on the Store lane lateral (This location is between Three mile creek road heading North to Ridge road) will be temporarily shut down to repair a hole in a pipe. Water should be restored sometime late morning August 25.
Beat One, from Como Dam to Willow Creek, water should be restored.
Beat Two, from Willow Creek to Burnt Fork, Smitty is in the process of opening head gates this may take until late afternoon.
Beat Three, As of this morning water is reaching the Three mile area. The gravity systems will SLOWLY be coming on line. This may take until late evening to get everyone restored. Still working on getting water over to the Eagle Watch area. Stay posted for updates.
Just a reminder the District is on BASIC WATER…
If you don’t know how many irrigated acres you have call the office or contact your ditch rider for this information.
SIPHON ONE IS REPAIRED
Siphon one is repaired. The District started water at 12:00 PM Thursday July 28, 2011. Water will take 48 to 72 hours to reach all areas. Just a reminder the District is on BASIC WATER…
SIPHON ONE IS DOWN FOR REPAIRS
This looks to be the same type of problem the District encountered earlier this season. So, Siphon One will be down for repairs. We anticipate the siphon should be down for 48 to 72 hours. We no longer have high water from the creeks to keep minimal flows going. Please stay posted for updates.
UPDATE ON 2011 WATER SEASON
Como Lake stopped spilling on Monday, July 25, 2011. Basic rule of thumb is once the Como Lake stops spilling the District normally has 60 days of water pending weather and unforeseen problems with the canal. Just a reminder once the Lake stops spilling the District is on BASIC WATER…
This has been an exceptional year for water!
SIPHON ONE REPAIRED
Siphon one was repaired yesterday, June 15, 2011 . Water should be restored late Thursday.
SIPHON ONE REPAIR
This looks to be the same type of problem the District encountered earlier this season. So, Siphon One will be down for repairs. We anticipate the siphon should be down for 48 to 72 hours. The users between Como Lake and Skalkaho creek will not have water. The District will be using Skalkaho water to try and maintain minimal flows between Skalkaho creek and Burnt Fork Creek. This should not affect the users North of Burnt Fork. Please stay posted for updates.
