NUID sets Oct. 13 shutoff date
A tentative water shut-off date of Friday, Oct. 13, was set by the North Unit Irrigation District Board of Directors at its September meeting.
The ditchriders will not be working on Saturday, Oct. 14, so no changes in water orders will be made after Friday, Oct. 13.
Growers who have water running at that time, and who do not want it to run through the weekend, must call Thursday afternoon before 5 p.m., to have water turned off for areas below Haystack Reservoir. Areas above Haystack must call between 6:30 and 7:30 a.m., Friday for shut-off.
Farmers who want water to run through the weekend can just leave their irrigation running, or they may call to have it turned on Friday at the same times.
Water running on the lower ends of the project laterals likely will still have water running through Monday or Tuesday, so growers in those areas are asked to plan for that.
Those with questions may call Bob Ringering at the district office at 475-3625, or by cell phone at 480-8916.
