NUID sets water turn-on date
- Madras Pioneer - News
> North Unit Irrigation District has announced irrigation water will be available Friday, April 6.
Water users are reminded that all bills must be paid and the required forms completed before water can be ordered and received.
Any equipment, wheel lines, fences or other items located on district easements or in lateral canals must be removed to allow access for ditchriders who will be traveling the roads to prime laterals and deliver water this week.
NUID began priming the main canals in Bend and Haystack Reservoir on April 2, in order to utilize available natural water flow before the upper water districts begin their water seasons.
Priming of some sublateral canals will begin April 4, but most will be on April 5. The first official water delivery will be April 6.
