Water Diversion Update

Water is being diverted into the Alberta Environment Main Canal. At this time water has just passed Highway 785. It is expected that water will be ready to start flushing the Monarch Main Canal on Friday morning.

In the West part of the District, water should be available for use starting on Tuesday or Wednesday of next week (May 3rd or 4th) depending on where you are in the system. We are going to start filling pipelines on Monday and will focus on filling domestic and feedlot dugouts first prior to irrigation.

In the East part of the District (water out of Keho Lake), specialty crops are able to order water starting now for use for tomorrow. All other crops can start ordering water tomorrow for use starting on Friday.

Remember that you are required to give a minimum of 24 hours notice when ordering water both on and off. Contact your Water District Supervisor directly on their cellular phone, voice message, or text message is acceptable. You can also email your Water District Supervisors.

Thank you for your cooperation and patience throughout this difficult time. Best wishes for a productive irrigation season.
