Talent Irrigation District will begin refilling the canals today, Monday, June 28th. As always, the canals need to be brought up to operating depths slowly as not to cause any canal failures. This means water deliveries will begin in the next few days. The ditch riders will be working to get headgates unlocked and laterals filled with water. You do not need to call the district office to have your headgate unlocked. The ditch riders will be unlocking them as the canal flows come up to delivery levels.
If you are located on a pressurized irrigation line, please do not open any valves without first talking to your ditch rider. If people start irrigating before the pressure line is charged, it takes a much longer period of time to get the lines completely charged and ready for use.
