Wind Precautions

Check#2 Umatilla

March winds have finally arrived – better late than never!

 

Here are the important things to remember:

  • Check your screens often and keep them clean.
  • If you get water down a lateral, follow your water from the headgate all of the way to your property.  Make sure there are no weeds that have blown in the lateral to affect the flow of water.  Keep an eye on the lateral while taking water to insure that it remains clear of debris.
  • If you have to shut your water off unexpectedly, call the emergency on-call ditchrider at  541-314-0005
