AttentionImportant Notice - Magnacide Treatment

This is a reminder that Magnacide applications in our canals are ongoing for 2019 and will continue through August. Please refer to Public Notices 2019 Weed Control Program for a detailed schedule of applications. Water should not be diverted for domestic use during applications.

The main canal from Little Bow Reservoir to Scope Reservoir will be treated on June 21/22. In order to make this affordable we need to restrict the flow to no more than 1/3 of our usual high flow rate during this time. If you draw water from this reach of canal, including any pipelines and Lateral A and Lateral B canals please cooperate by restricting your irrigation to 1/3 of your systems from the evening of June 20 through the evening of June 21 if  your land is in Ranges 17, 18, 19, or 20, or from the evening of June 21 through the evening of June 22 if your land is in Ranges 14, 15, 16 or 17. Please ensure that your irrigation is caught up before then to make this possible.
