2021 Temporary Water Shut Off Update
At the August 10, 2021 North Unit Irrigation District Board Meeting the board set the 2021 temporary water shut off date and schedule as follows: The district’s diversion at Wickiup will be shut down between August 18-20. The last date that ditch riders will make water adjustments will be Friday, August 20, 2021.
The last date that district water users can place a water order is before 5:00 pm on Thursday, August 19, 2021 below Haystack or between 6:30 am and 7:30 am on Friday, August 20, 2021 for water users above Haystack. Deliveries running August 20-21 will be charged 24-hrs of water as a full delivery is expected, but no charge after that as the canal drains.
Water will remain running to those water users who have ordered water until the main canal has drained. This will not apply to those on pipelines. We would like to keep pipelines charged during this shutdown period. Pipelines will be shut-off and locked Monday, August 23.
Expect the temporary shutdown to last until early October.
Please plan your operations accordingly.
