At the time of this writing, there is a lot of work to do before start-up. We are giving broad estimated dates. And, as usual, start-up is dependent on weather events as well as workload. Please check back for up-to-date information.
MAIN CANAL: Please close your valves and have your system ready by March 13. Our target for water start-up on the main canal is between March 16-23. It takes 3 days to flush, put in check boards, and start the upper canal. We will follow into Boardman as soon as we can.
IRRIGON SYSTEM & PUMP STATIONS: Please close your valves by April 3. We have targeted April 6-13 as the start-up day for the Irrigon system and pump stations throughout the District It takes 3-4 days to get all the systems started.
