Updated Tuesday, July 28, 2015 at 7:45 a.m.

UPDATED 7/28/15 MC DONALD SYSTEM WATER SUPPLY

The water supply has dropped off and we started rotating the canals again on July 21st. The rotation started with the Fredericks on the 21st and was switched to the Upper West Canal on Tuesday, July 28th. The supply is very low and we are not sure that there will be enough to run this week.

We will continue to keep the system in service as long as we have water to run it.

We will keep the website updated daily to keep you informed of the status.

UPDATED 7/28/2015 MOSS REMOVAL ON THE ASHLAND CANAL WILL BEGIN ON WEDNESDAY, JULY 29TH AND CONTINUE THROUGHOUT THE REST OF THE WEEK

We will have one machine removing moss on the Ashland Main Canal at Tolman Creek Road moving upstream tomorrow. The moss removal operation will continue throughout the rest of this week.

UPDATED 7/28/2015 MOSS REMOVAL ON THE TALENT CANAL WILL CONTINUE THROUGHOUT THE WEEK OF JULY 27TH

We have one machine removing moss on the Talent Main Canal at Camp Baker Road moving upstream. The moss removal operation will continue throughout the rest of this week.

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.
