Manager Kirkpatrick spent the weekend chasing tumbleweeds and keeping the A Line clear as we flushed the main line. The crew will be busy with last minute maintenance projects, burning and spraying today. We will now begin charging the rest of the system starting with the B Line. We will keep you posted as other canals and lines are charged throughout the week.
HID plans to start releasing water from Cold Springs in the next 24 hours. We will begin charging the system and if all goes well we hope to have water to everyone by the end of next week.
