Last Day of Irrigation Water
The last day of irrigation water will be between September 2 -5, 2013. As we draw down Como Lake in the days to come I can give you a better idea on the exact date that irrigation water will be shut down. This information will be posted on the web site.
The HydroMet system which gives Como Lake elevation readings is not working. The Bureau of Reclamation will be working on the system in the off season.
Como Lake stopped spilling on Friday, July 5, 2013. 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
