The North Unit Irrigation District Board of Directors has set a tentative canal fill date for the 2014 irrigation season.

Water will be released at the Bend headworks and Haystack Reservoir the morning of April 16. Water deliveries will be available in some areas by April 19, and all areas within the district will be able to receive water by April 21.

A water allotment has been set at two acre-feet per acre for Deschutes River water right lands, and one acre-foot per acre for Crooked River water right lands.

At this time, no excess water will be available. The district will continue to monitor water supply conditions as the irrigation season progresses to determine additional supply availability.
