Irrigation Schedule & Stock Runs

2017 Irrigation Season
The 2017 Irrigation Season will begin winding down around September 13th and 14th as we roll into our 50% delivery season. Per the ramp-down schedule below, delivery rates vary across the District and some patrons may experience water shortages as we transition the system from 100% to 50% to 30% flows. Shortages may be especially evident during warm weather. Clogged private ditches and pipelines, grates, pumps, and/or filters are the landowners responsibility to keep free and clear. The cleaner your private infrastructure, the better your flows will be during our 50% and 30% seasons. Please call the District office with any questions or concerns. We are here to help.

 

Irrigation Season Estimated Target Dates

April 1 ...................................................0% to 30% flow rate delivered

May 1 .....................................................50% flow rate delivered

May 15 - Sept 14..........................100% flow rate delivered

Sept 15...................................................50% flow rate delivered

Sept 29...................................................30% flow rate delivered

Oct 14- 31 (depending on weather)....................................30% to 0%

October 17th, 2017 Update: Due to upcoming wet weather, colder night time temps, and rapidly declining demand, we will be ramping down fall flows starting on October 26th. Deliveries will be shut down along the Main Pipeline on the 26th and 27th for winterization. All flow will cease to all customers by the end of the day on Oct 31st. Please contact the District with any concerns. Many thanks to all of our customers for a great season.

*Note: Turning water into and out of our system is always weather-dependent and per demand. Once we start turning-in, typically April 1st through April 4th, it may take 1-2 days for water to reach your delivery gate. As we transition into Fall, flows will drop to 30% and 50% with the same 1-2 day period of adjustment.  Your private ditch maintenance during Fall and Spring are key to smooth water deliveries during our shoulder seasons.
