That’s a Wrap

HID crews officially closed the gates at the reservoir this morning. That is the end of the 2021 Irrigation Season.  Thank you to all of our patrons who are so conscientious with the water, field crew members who work seven days a week to get water to all of our patrons, and the ladies in the office who are always there with a friendly greeting and ready to help when needed. We were able to deliver all of the water that we were entitled to through one of the longest heat waves in our history and keep people watered-up. I am so proud of what we do for our community. We hope you all enjoy the off season. We will see you again next year.
