UPDATE FOR OUR 2018 IRRIGATION SEASON
RRVID is beginning the ramping down procedure for the 2018 water shut off. We will be completely shut down on Wednesday September 19, 2018. We hope you all had a successful 2018 season and lets hope for snow in the mountains and a wet spring in 2019.
I hope that you are all surviving this smoke filled summer. I thought that I would give you a brief update on how long I believe we will be running water for our 2018 irrigation season.
We are drawing hard on the reservoirs now and historically July and August are the months with the heaviest demand. July and August will determine how long we will be able to run the canals. As of now, we are looking at a mid-September shut off. I know this isn’t perfect but hopefully that will get us through what has so far been a very demanding season.
Please do the best that you can to stay on rotations. Also please pay attention to the water when it is your turn, keep your irrigation system maintained and head ditches clean. We ask that you please be diligent and keep water from running off.
Let’s all do our part and hopefully we will have a successful 2018 irrigation season despite the drought conditions.
