THE TALENT CANAL IS EXPERIENCING A
WATER SHORTAGE AS OF THURSDAY MAY 28TH.
WE ARE WORKING TO BRING THE CANAL FLOW
BACK UP AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE.
Thank you for your patience.
WATER DELIVERY UPDATE 5/20/15
Cool weather persists which is helping us
immensely. The canals are running
generally at about 60-65% of normal flow
and demand remains down, which it is not
enough to cure the drought we are in, it
definitely helps us.
Keep in mind it will get hot and demand
will come up. Everyone needs to be
patient. We will try to bring the canals
up early as the weather warms, however
demand often comes up faster than we can
safely get the canals to normal operating
