The North Unit Irrigation District Board of Directors reviewed the current weather and water supply conditions for the 2019 season and set the tentative water release date from the Bend Headworks and Haystack Reservoir for April 22.
District crews began priming the system on April 23. The district anticipates an extended priming period based on current district conditions. Irrigation deliveries to all patrons will begin on Tuesday, April 30.
In order to insure system priming is carried out in the most efficient manner, the district asks irrigators to make sure that all wheel-lines, hand-lines, equipment, livestock fences and any other items are not on the canal easements.
The district is not responsible for damaged items that are left within the district's easements.
