Dinuba, CA – On August 22nd, Alta Irrigation District (District) will begin ramping-down water deliveries for the 2020 water run. This ramp-down will mirror the staggered ramp-up experienced at the start of water run. The initial shutoff impacts landowners receiving water from turnouts served by one or more of the following ditches: Mt. Campbell, Wahtoke, Reedley Main, Buttonwillow, East and West Gould, Traver Canal, and any turnout diverting water from Alta Main and upstream of about Lincoln Avenue. A second round of shutoffs is planned for August 29th for landowners served by turnouts and/or ditches with headgates on the Alta Main/East Branch generally between Lincoln and Sumner Avenues. The final shutdown is scheduled for September 10th and applies to those landowners served by turnouts and/or ditches with headgates on the East Branch and downstream of Smith Mountain headgate (near Sumner Avenue). If you have any questions about the status of a ditch serving your property, please contact your ditchtender.

 

Many of the ditches within the District are interconnected, which means they are utilized not only convey water to adjacent lands, but to supply water to areas in the lower part of the District. So, if your property is associated with the initial shutoff, please refrain from taking water flowing in a ditch adjacent to your property as that water is being delivered to downstream users. For additional information about this about this year’s water run, please visit the District website at www.altaid.org. or call the District office (559) 591-0800.
