As if working short staffed wasn’t enough; the community of Penrose experienced a weather event that impacted most of Penrose with 2-3 inches of rain in a two hour time span on July 13th. Not only did we experience a down pour; Bear Creek that runs across 3rd and 4th street was running high and dumping water into our lower canal causing our canal to overflow. Connie and Larry immediately closed the Lake off and shut down all of the transfers from the system. The irrigation system remained off until 19th when we could get shareholders scheduled to receive water. Completion of 2nds is coming soon with 3rds starting.
Good News! We are pleased to announce and welcome our newest Ditch Rider, Charlie Avila to the Beaver Park Water, Inc. staff. He is looking forward to meeting and working with all the shareholders on the East Lines. Tom is anticipated to return to modified duties possibly as soon as the first week of August. And the Best News of all; Brush Hollow Reservoir is at 91.70 feet. This should definitely secure irrigations for the season.
Beaver Park Water wants to thank all those who have assisted in helping the staff through this difficult month. We have been fortunate to have previous ditch riders and shareholders share their time, knowledge and experience in running the East Lines. A big thank you goes out to all the shareholders for their patience and understanding during this transition period. Please continue to keep in mind that learning new lines doesn’t come easy, please be patient as Charlie learns the East Line deliveries. In addition, if you are aware of a particular uniqueness to your delivery, please share this with Charlie. Your assistance is a valuable part of his learning process.
We survived July …..Bring on August!
REMINDER – The 2nd half of assessments are due and payable by August 1st. Unpaid assessments will not receive irrigation water until assessments are in good standing
