The weather of course was a wonderful mixture of snow, sun, rain and dry windy days which Colorado is famous for. With the upper ditch relining work completed the staff began work on cleaning the ditches and mowing. We were able to secure additional assistance to clean and mow in efforts to complete this task in a shorter time. In addition to the cleaning prior to irrigation starting, there are a couple of delivery boxes that will need repair throughout the system. The line on C St. has been replaced that serves line 6B; this will provide a much better water delivery. Everything is coming together for the 2018 irrigation season. Estimated time for starting irrigation is April 16th. Brush Hollow is currently at 90 ft. which is very close to full and that will provide the first irrigations. Pikes Peak received very little snow this winter and snow melt will be practically non-existent. The one thing we do need is for Mother Nature to provide us with some significant moisture in the form of rain or snow or both.
All assessments were due April 1st. Those wishing to pay their assessments in two parts may pay the first half in April and the second half will be due August 1st. There will be a $10 administration fee for this option. Please note, that all accounts not in good standing, will not be eligible to receive water. Your ditch rider will not contact you or put you on the schedule. It is your responsibility to keep your account in good standing.
Please also be aware if you have changed your contact numbers, we are unable to schedule you for water. Please call the office at 372-3664 to have your profile updated. Additionally, we have received returned invoices with undeliverable addresses. Please update your mailing addresses also!Ditch Riders and Contact Numbers
