Water Applications Mailed Today
The District mailed the 2018 Water Application for the irrigation season today. Unless late winter and spring rains add to the water supply, we anticipate implementing water allocations. In an allocated water season, it is imperative that you return your water application to the District (or have it post-marked) by the close of business on March 15th. If you do not receive your application by February 23rd, please contact the District office.
Water rates will be determined at a later date, based upon water availability.
