CANAL OUTAGE UPDATE

9/9/20 7:30 am. Reclamation is still having some power problems at their pump station. The pumps, which came on about 4:00 pm yesterday, shut off about 2 am this morning and again at 7 am. Power companies have finished their work and Reclamation crews are going through the system to get everything reset. Water should be up again this morning. In the meantime, we have 35 cfs going into Boardman, working its way down the ditch. The rest of the water did not get there.

We are asking folks in the upper canal to delay taking water so we can get water to the critical crops in Boardman and stabilize the canal.

No district pump stations will be on today.
