The cres is finishing up the main canal start-up and related repairs. They are starting to open and flush the lines from Umatilla to Irrigon off the main canal today. Here is the latest plan for completing the water start-up.
UPPER MAIN CANAL: All irrigators should have water by Friday evening. Southshore pump will be put on by-pass until Monday morning when the crew will start the pump.
IRRIGON: The Irrigon Pressure System (IPS) and Division Pump will be started on Friday and Saturday (14th and 15th). Pumps will be on low pressure until there is enough water use to power up the booster pumps.
RELOCATION CANAL: Water will be turned into the Relocation canal Friday and available for water use by the end of the day.
BOARDMAN: Canal repair is complete. Repairs on several lines have been completed and a few pump stations are ON. On Monday or Tuesday (17th and 18th), the crew will be back in Boardman to finish start-up and begin burning the open ditches. Flood schedule starts next week.
