North Unit Irrigation District has set a tentative water turn-on date for the coming irrigation season.
Water will be released at Haystack Reservoir the morning of April 7, and water deliveries will be available in some areas by April 10.
All areas within the district will be able to receive water by April 14. The NUID Board of Directors will continue to monitor weather conditions and may move the turn-on date if conditions change.
Wickiup Reservoir is at about 195,000 acre-feet and is currently still frozen over, with about 20 inches of snow on top, it was noted. At full capacity, the reservoir holds 200,000 acre-feet.
