Douglas Canal Restart

I will begin charging Douglas Creek Canal with water today, Thursday the 13th, after having been shut down for the past seven days.  Irrigation water should be available beginning tomorrow, Friday the 14th.  Irrigators should please let me know of your water orders as needed.

Contract Water Update

Change to Contract Water

Beginning this Thursday, June 29th, water use by share holder’s of Nevada Creek Water User’s Association will change to contract water usage.  We have enjoyed very favorable spring water supplies and 2 months of “flood” water, but with radically dropping creek flows and summer weather conditions we can no longer anticipate sustained reservoir levels.  Contract water users can plan on receiving 100% of contracted water.

Decreed Water Rights

Dropping creek flows are causing more junior water rights to drop off for available water.  All irrigators with decreed rights are encouraged to moniter the changing Status of Irrigation Rights and please respect the good rights of your neighbors.
