Water Start-Up Still In Progress

rainbirdWEID crews are still working to get water delivery started to everyone.  There are several areas of the District that don’t have water yet.  It is a process to get water started along our 27-mile canal, laterals, and pump stations.

If you are in one of the groups that still doesn’t have water, please have patience as our crews are working steadily to get delivery started to everyone.

If you have any questions, please call the office at 541-922-3814.
