UPDATED 7/31/2015 MOSS REMOVAL ON THE EAST MAIN CANAL WILL BEGIN ON MONDAY, AUGUST 3RD AND CONTINUE THROUGHOUT THE REST OF THE WEEK

We have one machine which will be removing moss on the East Main Canal at Wilson Road moving upstream. The moss removal operation will continue throughout the rest of next week.

UPDATED 7/31/15 THE MC DONALD SYSTEM WATER SUPPLY IS EXHAUSTED AND WAS COMPLETELY SHUT DOWN AT 7:00 A.M. ON THURSDAY JULY 30TH

WATER SUPPLY UPDATE JULY 13, 2015

The cool wet weather has caused some issues for us with trees down and debris being washed into the canals plugging headgates and pipe entrances. However, it has also helped us considerably, by reducing demand and outflows to the canals allowing us to trim releases from the reservoirs. Whether it is enough to make any appreciable difference on how far we can run this year remains to be seen. It has definitely helped us offset the drastic demand that we had on the system related to the extended 100 degree weather that we experienced recently. Barring anything unforeseen, or another extended run of high temperatures, projections still show the supply lasting to approximately the 3rd week in September.

We did have a short term debris problem with the head works of the Talent canal brought on by the storm yesterday, but that has been unplugged and flow is back up to normal. Some users may experience a short term outage.
