main canal UPDATE

May 29, 2019 4:00 pm

MAIN CANAL: Crews have been hard at work all day on the main canal repair. Concrete was poured this afternoon. Water was turned in at the dam about 12:30 pm. As this is a start up after a repair, we are starting slowly. The crews are working in shifts to get water down the canal. We will stay on it until water gets to the siphon late tonight. Then they will start at 4 am tomorrow to get water into Boardman. FORECAST: Thursday morning for the Upper Canal (Umatilla/Irrigon) and Thursday mid-day for Boardman.
