Main Canal Update

Thursday, May 30, 2019 8:00 am.

Crews are at the dam turning water back in to the main canal. There was a problem at the restart yesterday evening. The canal was taken back down and another repair done. Crews will work through until water has made it into Boardman. It is a 24-hour start up.

Thank you for your patience during this stressful time.
