Irrigation Water from the Pioneer Ditch:

May 21, 2020

It looks like adjudicated water is running out. The inflow into Lemon has dropped off to where it is just barely keeping up with demand. When it drops below outflow, there will be a call on the river and as we are Priority 78, the lowest around, we will lose that water.  So store it if you can and please, please do not waste any. As soon as the call goes in we will go onto project water and only those lots with deeded rights can use it. We will draw 3 acre-feet per day until we run out in a bit over a month if we get only 60%.. I will update when I know more.
