Water Update:  RRVID plans to run water thru September 13th.  Please continue to stay in touch with your ditch rider and the office to let them know if you will be taking water this last week.

 

UPDATE August, 10, 2015 - 2015 WATER SEASON 

 

Rogue River Valley Irrigation District's water supply seems to be holding fairly well.  Water deliveries will run through the first week of September and I am optimistic that we will get well into the second week of September before we shut down the system.  There are still a lot of variables that could force an earlier shut off, but for now, patrons can plan on water through the first week. 

Our patrons need to continue to pay close attention to water use and please stay in contact with the office or your ditch rider to keep our water deliveries running as smooth as possible.  Our crew has been working on moss control, please be patient as we work through the mossing operation. 

Thank you for your cooperation this season and let's hope for a wet winter and spring.

The start date for the 2015 season has been set for May 4, 2015.   Please call the office for your delivery schedule.

 

To all water patrons,

 

This water year has been extremely dry and at this point it is one of the driest years on record and shortages are a possibility.  Rogue River Valley Irrigation District (RRVID) is optimistic that we will still have a few more good storms coming through the valley that can change our current supply for the better. 

 

RRVID staff and Board of Directors have a constant watch on the snow pack, precipitation and reservoir supply.  As we firm up and stabilize, that is when the decisions will be made concerning whether cut backs or allotment changes are necessary.

 

Once the season starts, we are asking that all water users do everything possible to conserve as much water as they can.  This means keeping in touch with our district staff as to irrigation needs, and letting staff know when you are done irrigating so we can get the water moved to the next user.  Do not run water off, and keep delivery ditches clean and free from debris to move water more efficiently.  Keep sprinkler nozzles in good condition and replace worn nozzles with new ones.  Move wheel lines and hand lines more often than every 12 hours, and do not over-graze pastures.

 

If we all do our part, RRVID feels we can still have a successful 2015 irrigation season.

 

Good luck and lets all work together!

 

Manager Hampson
