WATER START-UP NOW

Water will be turned into the main canal on Tuesday morning, March 17. Please close your valves now. It is a long day to fill up the canal from the dam to I-84. If all goes well, we will send the water into Boardman Wednesday. At the same time, we will put the checks in the upper canal. Irrigators can start calling in their water orders now.

The various District pump stations will start up April 1 – 3.

Due to the coming cold spell, start-up of the main canal has been pushed back one week.
