Water Update

Water Update
Ditch riders are starting to release water down the laterals. Water users that are on open ditches need to walk the water down to ensure that the water doesn’t get blocked, by debris, and flood someone out. It is the responsibility of all water users on that lateral to ensure this happens. Communicate with your neighbor. This is the key for having a successful water season.

Pending location, on the main canal, this can take four to ten days to receive your water. Make sure your last minute maintenance items are completed prior to water delivery.
