The last adjudicated water was released Thursday and we are officially on project water which is for those with deeded rights only.  The ditch board is reviewing all accounts and may cut off delivery to those with delinquent accounts.


As we are out of adjudicated water now, we will be going on project.  Our water has been very limited in that we got less than half what we were entitled to even though we were emptying the river.  We have had droughts before but we are in exceptional drought conditions now, which is the worst classification.  I will extend the project water as far as I can, but all non-project users must shut down.

On a more personal note, if you have any concerns, bring them to my attention at this email and I will address them.  But #1 thing to remember is NO WHINING.  If you tell me how other managers got you water or you’re upset about not getting all YOU think you deserve or other users are getting more, I will delete your message.  Keep it up and I will block you.  It is part of the ditch bylaws which we should be adopting, that no abuse of the rider or  manager  will be tolerated.  If such occurs, there are provisions for cutting off your water.

Thank you,

Eric Sibelius, Irrigation
